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.
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 July 15, 2007 (Please note this new deadline). 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: http://www.alc.ucla.edu/jk17/.
