Dear fellow linguist and/or North East Indianist,

We are pleased to announce that the 8th International Conference of the 
North East Indian Linguistics Society (NEILS) will be held from *January 
31 to February 2, 2014*, in Guwahati, Assam, India, to be hosted by the 
Gauhati University Department of Linguistics 

*_Abstracts _*
To present a paper at the Conference, please send an abstract of no more 
than 500 words (exclusive of data and references, if any) no later than 
*September 15, 2013* via email to /both/ s.morey at 
<mailto:s.morey at> /and/ markwpost at 
<mailto:markwpost at>. Please send /both/ the original abstract 
(.docx, .doc, .odf, .rtf or .txt format) /and/ a .pdf of the same. 
Please save the file using the following format: 

*Important: When preparing your abstract, do not use any special 
formatting, styles, etc. Just give the paper title, your name and 
affiliation, and your abstract, in plain text. That's all!***

Notification of acceptance will normally take place in early October, 
although early submissions/decisions for those needing to make extensive 
advance travel arrangements can be arranged. As the primary focus of 
NEILS is description of the rich cultural-linguistic diversity that 
exists in North East India, papers should have a primary descriptive 
component, preferably from a functional-typological or 
anthropological-linguistic perspective. Field reports are acceptable. 
Papers whose sole or primary focus is formal, theoretical and/or 
computational in nature, or papers whose focus is on languages not 
spoken in North East India, are unlikely to be accepted for 
presentation. However, we will consider papers concerning languages 
spoken in the areas of Myanmar, China, Bhutan, Bangladesh and West 
Bengal that border the North East.

The fee schedule for NEILS is as follows, and includes lunch and 
tea/snacks on each day of the conference:
Rs. 300SAARC student without financial support
Rs. 1000SAARC student with financial support
Rs. 1500SAARC non-student (includes teaching faculty pursuing PhD) or 
International student
Rs. 3000International non-student

The NEILS policy on certificates is as follows:
a) Everyone attending the conference will have to register themselves by 
paying the relevant fees. We do not have a single day fee.
b) Certificates will be issued only to paper presenters. Merely 
registering for the conference by paying the relevant fees will not 
entitle a person to a certificate.
c) In order to receive individual certificates, each co-author of a 
paper will have to pay the relevant registration fees irrespective of 
whether they attend the conference in person or not. If a fee is not 
paid by non-attending authors, only one certificate will be issued to 
the attending author, but naming the paper and all the authors.
d) Jointly authored papers, one of whose authors is unable to attend the 
conference, will be considered for publication in the NEILS volumes 
under the name of all co-authors.

Accommodation will be available, and will be announced in due course on 
the NEILS mailing list, and will also be posted on the NEILS website 
(see below).

Please consult the NEILS website at _ 
periodically for updated information closer to the conference date, or, 
for any individual questions, please contact markwpost at

We look forward to welcoming you to Guwahati in January!
