Abstract submission for APLL16 is now open. The Programme Committee welcomes presentations on any aspect of the linguistics of Austronesian and Papuan languages, including descriptive linguistics of individual languages, and comparative and historical studies involving several of these languages. The purpose of the APLL conferences is to provide a venue for presentation of the best current research on Austronesian and Papuan languages and linguistics, and to promote collaboration and research in this area.

Following APLL16, the 3rd Workshop on the Languages of Wallacea will be held on 4 July 2024. Special topic for WLW3: New perspectives on the history of the South Halmahera-West New Guinea subgroup. In this workshop, we welcome all contributions which engage with all aspects of the history of this Austronesian subgroup. Questions to be considered include, but are not limited to: What are the challenges for understanding the history of SHWNG languages? How much is really known about their internal relationships and what is the evidence for them? What is the role of contact in the history of the group? Are there alternatives to traditional subgrouping as explanations for linguistic similarities shared across the group?

For both events, presentations will be 20 minutes, followed by 10 minutes of discussion. For each event, each individual may contribute up to two submissions, one of which may be a single-author paper. Abstracts will be peer-reviewed by members of the Programme Committee. Please send your abstracts of papers for APLL16 and WLW3 to appl16conference at gmail.com<mailto:appl16conference at gmail.com> no later than the date specified below. Please indicate on the abstract whether the submission is to APLL16 or WLW3.

Abstracts must be no more than two A4 pages in length, including all material such as references, examples, figures, tables, and maps. Abstracts must be anonymous and set in a minimum of 12pt font. They should be in .pdf format and the filename should start with APLL16 (or WLW3), followed by an underscore and then first author’s surname, e.g. APLL16_sonder.pdf or WLW3_sonder.pdf. If you have a common surname, please also include initials, e.g. APLL16_jsmith.pdf.
