We are pleased to announce that the 20th Himalayan Languages Symposium
(HLS20) will be held in Singapore on 16-18 July 2014, hosted by the Division
of Linguistics and Multilingual
and the Centre for Liberal Arts and Social Sciences, Nanyang Technological
University (NTU).

Scholars are invited to submit abstracts of papers dealing with any aspect
of linguistics that is relevant to research on Himalayan languages. This
encompasses descriptions of phonetics & phonology, morphology, syntax,
discourse studies, semantics & pragmatics, language documentation and
typology, as well as field reports of recently researched languages. In
addition, abstracts of papers dealing with the history of the greater
Himalayan region, population movements, genetic studies, anthropological
studies, and contact with languages belonging to other linguistic families
are invited for submission.

*Submission of abstracts*

Abstracts of papers for the main sessions of HLS20 should be submitted
online via the Easychair system using this link:
https://www.easychair.org/account/signin.cgi?conf=hls20. To submit an
abstract you will first need to sign up for an Easychair account if you do
not already have one. Abstracts should be written in English using a 12
point font and have a maximum length of 350 words including references. Use
a Unicode-compliant font if special characters are required, such as Doulos
which is available as freeware. If you have problems submitting your
abstract online, please contact the conference organizers at
HLS20.email at gmail.com. Information on the website will be continually
updated as conference arrangements progress.

*Call for workshops/panels*

Ideas are solicited for workshops or panels to be run in parallel with the
main sessions on one or more days of HLS20. Please send suggestions
together with a short write-up of the proposed workshop theme, including
names of potential workshop participants, to HLS20.email at gmail.com.
