Meeting Description:

We are pleased to announce that the 20th Himalayan Languages Symposium (HLS20) will be held in Singapore on 16-18 July 2014, hosted by Nanyang Technological University (NTU).

The Himalayan Languages Symposium is an annual event that provides an open scholarly forum for scholars working on various aspects of languages of the greater Himalayan region: Burushaski, Kusunda, Tibeto-Burman, Indo-Iranian, Austroasiatic, Kradai, Andamanese, Nahali, Dravidian or any other language of the area. 

Call for Papers:

Contributions are welcome on any language of the greater Himalayan region, e.g. Burushaski, Kusunda, Tibeto-Burman, Indo-Iranian, Austroasiatic, Kradai, Andamanese, Nahali, Dravidian or any other language of the area. In addition to linguistic presentations, contribution are also welcome from related disciplines such as history, anthropology, archaeology and prehistory. The forum is secular and scholarly and not open to political or religious contributions.

Scholars are invited to submit abstracts of papers dealing with any aspect of linguistics that is relevant to research on Himalayan languages. This encompasses descriptions of phonetics & phonology, morphology, syntax, discourse studies, semantics & pragmatics, language documentation and typology, as well as field reports of recently researched languages. In addition, abstracts of papers dealing with the history of the greater Himalayan region, population movements, genetic studies, anthropological studies, and contact with languages belonging to other linguistic families are invited for submission.

Submission of Abstracts:

Abstracts of papers for the main sessions of HLS20 should be submitted online via Easychair using this link: https://www.easychair.org/account/signin.cgi?conf=hls20. To submit an abstract you will first need to sign up for an Easychair account if you do not already have one. Abstracts should be written in English using a 12 point font and have a maximum length of 350 words including references. Use a Unicode-compliant font if special characters are required, such as Doulos SIL, which is available as freeware. 

If you have problems submitting your abstract online, please contact the conference organizers at HLS20.email at gmail.com. Information on the website will be continually updated as conference arrangements progress.

Call for Workshops/Panels:	

Ideas are solicited for workshops or panels to be run in parallel with the main sessions on one or more days of HLS20. Please send suggestions together with a short write-up of the proposed workshop theme, including names of potential workshop participants, to HLS20.email at gmail.com by 15 January 2014.
