Final Call for Abstracts


20-24 January 2014
Manokwari, West Papua, Indonesia


Papers are invited dealing with the "Papuan" (ie. non-Austronesian) 
languages spoken in eastern Indonesia, the greater New Guinea region, 
and the Solomon Islands. Equally welcome are papers concerned with the 
Austronesian languages spoken in the same areas, including the contact 
varieties of Malay, as well as Tok Pisin and Solomon Islands Pidgin. 
Papers may be in any of the subfields of linguistics, and may represent 
variegated approaches and diverse theoretical persuasions. Papers are to 
be delivered in English.


Persons wishing to present a paper at the symposium are invited to 
submit a one-page abstract in electronic form (preferably pdf, but 
MsWord also acceptable) to David Gil at the following address:
