The 17th Japanese/Korean Linguistics Conference will be held November
9-11, 2007, on the campus of the University of California, Los Angeles
(UCLA). This conference aims to provide a forum for presenting research
in Japanese and Korean linguistics, thereby facilitating efforts to
deepen our understanding of these two languages, which have striking
typological similarities. This year in addition to the general session,
two workshops with guest speakers are scheduled during the conference.
Information about these workshops will be available shortly.

Papers in all sub-areas of Japanese and Korean linguistics are invited.
Presentations will be 20 minutes long and will be followed by a
10-minute question and answer period. Please submit abstracts (one page,
500 words maximum) as a PDF file attached to an email message to
JK17 at humnet.ucla.edu by June 15, 2007. You may use a second page for
references and/or example sentences. The first line of your abstract
should indicate the category (Formal or Functional), followed by the
sub-field (e.g., Formal/Syntax, Functional/Discourse, etc.). The second
line should be the paper title, followed by the number of words used on
the first page of the abstract, excluding the first two lines with the
category, the sub-field, and the paper title (e.g., Title (492)). Omit
your name and affiliation from the abstract. In the body of your email
message, include name(s) and affiliation(s), address, phone number, and
email address, followed by the category, the sub-field, and the paper
title (e.g., Title (492)) copied from the top of the first page of the
abstract. Use the following subject header for your email: "JK17, Last
name, First Initial." Please note that only one abstract from each
individual can be considered for acceptance. One individual abstract or
one jointly authored abstract may be submitted.  All the necessary
information about the conference will appear on our conference website
in the coming weeks.
