The Language Documentation and Linguistic Theory biennial conference aims to bring together researchers working on linguistic theory and language documentation and description, with a particular focus on innovative work on under-described or endangered languages. The main session will run over two days. In addition to parallel sessions on 19 and 20 November 2011, the conference will be preceded by a satellite Workshop on Language Documentation and Archiving, to be held on 18 November 2011.

The plenary speakers for the main session are:

* Professor Balthasar Bickel, University of Leipzig
* Professor Anju Saxena, Uppsala University

The plenary speaker for the archiving workshop is:

* Professor Anthony Woodbury, University of Texas at Austin

The theme of the LDLT3 conference is 'Empirical methodologies that drive forward theory building'. For 2011, we especially welcome submissions addressing this theme in relation to languages of Asia.
