Meeting Description:

The linguistics departments of the University of Washington and Reed College
are pleased to announce the 24th meeting of the Austronesian Formal
Linguistics Association (AFLA), to be held at the University of Washington, in
Seattle, April 7-9, 2017.

AFLA 24 will include a one-day workshop on Comparative Formosan Linguistics,
along with plenary talks by the following invited speakers:

- Dr. Henry Y. Chang, Academia Sinica
- Dr. Julie Legate, University of Pennsylvania
- Dr. Martina Wiltschko, University of British Columbia

About AFLA:  AFLA is an organization which promotes the study of Austronesian
languages from a formal perspective. Since the initial meeting in 1994, AFLA
has served as a forum for the presentation of new research in all of the core
areas of formal analysis, including (but not limited to) phonology,
morphology, semantics, syntax, typology, and psycholinguistics. AFLA has a
history of bringing together leading scholars, native speaker-linguists, and
junior scholars in the formal study of Austronesian languages. Information
about past AFLA meetings can be found at http://westernlinguistics.ca/afla/.

AFLA 24 organizing committee:

- Edith Aldridge, University of Washington (co-chair)
- Matt Pearson, Reed College (co-chair)
- Richard Wright, University of Washington
- Steve Harrell, University of Washington


Call for Papers:

Abstracts are invited for 20-minute talks with 10 minutes for questions. (A
poster session may be added to the program after evaluation of submissions.)
Abstracts may deal with any aspect of theoretical or experimental linguistics
(morphology, phonetics, phonology, psycholinguistics, syntax, semantics,
typology) on any Austronesian language(s). Since the conference will include a
workshop on Comparative Formosan Linguistics, we particularly invite abstracts
on that theme. We ask that you limit your submissions to one singly-authored
abstract and one co-authored abstract, or two co-authored abstracts.

Submission guidelines:  Submissions should be in PDF format. Abstracts should
be no longer than 2 letter-sized (or A4) pages, including all text, data,
figures, and references. Text should be in a 12pt font, with page margins no
smaller than 1 inch (2.5 cm) on all sides. Abstracts may be submitted through
the conference website (https://lingconf.com/afla24/call/), and must be
received by November 28, 2016.

Questions:  Contact Matt Pearson (pearsonm at reed.edu), chair of the program
committee.
