The Austronesian and Papuan Languages and Linguistics research group is pleased to announce its fifth international conference APLL5 to be held at SOAS, University of London, on 4-5 May 2012. APLL5 follows the successful Austronesian Languages and Linguistics (ALL) conferences held at SOAS and St Catherine’s College Oxford in previous years, most recently ALL4; the numbering of the APLL conferences follows on from the sequence established by the ALL conferences. 

The keynote speaker for the conference will be Marian Klamer of Leiden University.
