Meeting Description:

The Conference concerns languages of Mande family (Niger-Congo).

The decision to call the 3rd Conference is in conformity with the will of the 
participants of 2nd Conference (St. Petersburg, 2008) to meet three years 
later and to make it a regular forum. We invite specialists in all Mande 
languages, of any generation, from any country, of any theoretical 
persuasion, to participate in the Conference. We also invite specialists in 
the languages of other families with long-established contacts with Mande 
languages to take part in the Conference in order to discuss external links 
of the Mande language family. The panels will be organized according to 
'traditional' divisions ('Phonology', 'Morphology', 'Syntax', 'Discourse', 
'Lexicology and lexicography', 'Comparative studies', 'Sociolinguistics', etc.). 
At the same time, specialized sessions can be scheduled too, if necessary. 
Initiatives to organize specialized sessions are welcome. Round tables and 
working groups may also be proposed, for topics that merit broad 
discussion or tasks that require detailed planning. The final list of panels 
and sessions will be defined with respect of the initiatives of the participants. 
The working languages of the Conference will be English and French.
