On October 18–20 2017, the 3rd Saami Linguistics Symposium will take place at the Freiburg Institute of Advanced Studies (FRIAS) in Freiburg, Germany and in collaboration with the Freiburg Research Group in Saami Studies and the Foundation for Endangered Languages Regional Interest Group «Northern Eurasia».

See the call for papers at https://easychair.org/cfp/saals-3 <https://easychair.org/cfp/saals-3>.

This is the continuation of a series of international symposia previously held in Tromsø in 2006 and 2009. The purpose of the symposium is to give researchers the opportunity to present current research to their peers, participate in formal and informal discussions on relevant topics, and discuss potential opportunities for future collaborative work.

The focus of the symposium will be on inflectional morphology from theoretical, descriptive, computational and other perspectives, but papers on other topics related to Saami languages and linguistics (including the sociology of language, language teaching, and language revitalization) are also highly welcome. We especially encourage younger researchers at the Master's and Ph.D. levels to present their work. Talks should be in English or in one of the Saami languages.

The symposium is being organized by Michael Rießler (FRIAS and Freiburg Research Group in Saami Studies), Joshua Wilbur (Freiburg Research Group in Saami Studies), Tim Feist (Surrey Morphology Group), and Flore Picard (Université Paris-Sorbonne), with financial and organisational support from FRIAS.

The keynote speaker will be Matthew Baerman (Surrey Morphology Group).

Please submit an anonymous, one-page abstract in English or Saami via EasyChair (the link will be active after the second call for papers) by 15 June 2017 . Letters of acceptance will be send in late July.
