Dear colleagues,

the 6th International conference on Samoyedology will be held on September 8–10, 2016 in Moscow, Russia. It will be dedicated to the memory of Ariadna Kuznetsova (1932–2015). The conference will be organized by the Institute of Linguistics, Russian Academy of Sciences.

Researchers from all branches of Samoyedic studies are welcome: linguists, anthropologists, folklorists, and social anthropologists. Please send your abstracts of up to 2 pages (ca. 3600 symbols) to samoyedology2016 at yandex.ru till March 1, 2016. Your e-mail should also include your full name, affiliation, e-mail, and phone number.

Working languages of the conference are Russian and English.

Special issues of the peer-reviewed journal “Ural-Altaic Studies” are planned for publishing papers based on the presentations at the conference. 

A special session on open resources in Samoyedic studies will be organized as a part of the conference. We invite short presentations on resources both that you have created yourself and that you use in your own work, whether they are online or they are available from their keepers on personal request. Please mention in your submission whether you are interested in giving a presentation at the special session, as well.

Given the number of submitted abstracts, there may also be organized a workshop on a specific grammatical topic of Samoyedic languages. More information will be available in spring 2016.

Important dates:
March 1, 2016 — deadline for submitting abstracts,
April 1, 2016 — notification of acceptance,
