The 9th International Conference on Austronesian Linguistics (9ICAL)
will be held in Canberra, at Burgmann College, The Australian
National University, from January 8-11, 2002.

The 5th International Conference of Oceanic Languages (COOL5) will be
held at the same venue from 14-16 January.

Both conferences are hosted by the Linguistics Department, Research
School of Pacific and Asian Studies at the ANU.
