8th Austronesian and Papuan Languages and Linguistics Conference, SOAS,
London, 13-14 May 2016: Final call for papers -- deadline 6 November 2015.


The Austronesian and Papuan Languages and Linguistics research group is
pleased to announce its eighth international conference APLL8 to be held at
SOAS, University of London, on 13-14 May 2016.  APLL8 follows the highly
successful APLL7 conference held in 2014, and the Austronesian Languages
and Linguistics (ALL) conferences held at SOAS and St Catherine's College
Oxford in previous years. For APLL8 we are grateful for generous
sponsorship from University of Edinburgh, University of Oxford, Surrey
Morphology Group, University of York and SOAS University of London.

The purpose of the APLL conferences is to provide a venue for presentation
of the best current research on Austronesian and Papuan languages and
linguistics and to promote collaboration and research in this area. All
papers will be subject to assessment by the Program Committee.

Abstracts are now invited for the APLL8 conference. Presentations will be
30 minutes followed by 10 minutes of discussion. Each individual may
present up to one single authored paper and one joint paper.

Abstracts should be no more than one A4 page in length including references
and examples. They should be anonymous, and set in a minimum of 12pt font.
They should be in .docx or .pdf format and the filename should start with
APLL8, followed by an underscore and then first authors' surname, e.g.
APLL8_bloggs.pdf. If you have a common surname, please also include
initials, e.g. APLL8_jjones.pdf.

Abstracts must be submitted via the EasyChair system which you can access
by clicking on this link: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=apll8

If you do not have an EasyChair account already, you will need to create
one when you do this. Once logged in complete your details and upload your
abstract as an attachment (pdf or docx).

The deadline for the submission of all abstracts is Friday 6 November 2015.

Applicants will be notified of abstract acceptance by Friday 11 December
2015.
