Please keep your conference announcement as short as you can; LINGUIST
will not post conference announcements which in our opinion are
excessively long.  Also, please remember that, once posted, your
announcement will be permanently available at our website:
For this reason, we discourage multiple submissions of the same
conference announcement.  Thank you for your cooperation.
