> Aihe: [Kitu] ICNGL11 in Freiburg - Call for papers
> (Please circulate widely!)
> This is to invite you to take part in the "resurrection" of the ICNGL  
> conferences - after a pause of more than a decade. (ICNGL10 was  
> organized in Reykjavik in 1998.) We hope you share our enthusiasm with  
> continuing the ICNGL tradition and we look forward to seeing you in  
> Freiburg (iBr) in the south of Germany in late April in 2012: spring  
> will already then be there to greet all northeners and others alike!
> You are most cordially welcome!
> The 11th International Conference of Nordic and General Linguistics,  
> organized under the auspices of the Nordic Association of Linguists,  
> will take place at Freiburg University April 18th-20th, 2012. The  
> ICNGL conference series provides an open forum for linguistic research  
> in order to facilitate the exchange of ideas on Nordic (including  
> Germanic, Finnic, Saamic and Greenlandic) and other languages, between  
> researchers from the Nordic countries and elsewhere. Its main goals  
> are to create and strengthen connections between researchers working  
> on different languages, with different methodological and theoretical  
> approaches. The Freiburg conference will have a special focus on  
> language contact.
> ICNGL 11 will be the second conference of this series taking place  
> outside the Nordic countries (after ICNGL 3, which took place at the  
> University of Texas, Austin, 1978.) The following speakers have  
> accepted our invitation to deliver plenary lectures:
> Lars-Olof Delsing (Lund)
> Frans Gregersen (Copenhagen)
> Auli Hakulinen (Helsinki)
> Martin Hilpert (Freiburg)
> Anneli Sarhimaa (Mainz)
> Sarah Thomason (Ann Arbor, Michigan)
> Call for papers
> In keeping with the goals of the conference series, we invite  
> abstracts for 20-minute papers or for posters on research topics in  
> Nordic and General linguistics. We especially welcome papers relating  
> to the conference topic of language contact in the Nordic area or  
> concerning Nordic languages elsewhere, but also encourage submissions  
> on issues such as 1) field linguistics, 2) areal typology, 3)  
> grammaticalization, 4) pragmatics, 5) intercomprehension, and 6)  
> innovative methodologies. Abstracts should be between 300 and 500  
> words in length and should fit on a single sheet of paper. References,  
> examples, and diagrams can be placed on a second sheet. Abstracts are  
> to be submitted via easy abstracts. Abstract submission opens on June  
> 1st, 2011. The deadline is November 1st, 2011. Authors will be  
> notified of the outcome of their abstract on December 15th, 2011.
> In addition to individual presentations, we invite proposals for theme  
> sessions. These should consist of five to six papers that address a  
> common topic of interest. Theme session proposals should be 500-700  
> words in length, excluding references, and should list the prospective  
> speakers and their presentation titles. They are to be submitted via  
> easy abstracts, but theme session organizers are encouraged to contact  
> us in advance. Deadline for submitting proposals for theme sessions is  
> September 1st, 2011. Notification of acceptance decisions will be  
> communicated by September 15th, 2011.
