> Dear Colleagues,
> I am pleased to announce that the Fourth Work­shop on Sino-Tibetan Lan­guages of South­west China (STLS-2016)* will be held at the Uni­ver­sity of Wash­ing­ton, in Seat­tle, USA, Sep­tem­ber 8–10 (Thu-Sat), 2016. This email con­sti­tutes the first cir­cu­lar and “save the date” announce­ment.**
> While it is still early days and many details remain to be worked out, I would like to draw your atten­tion to the fol­low­ing aspects of the workshop:
>    1. All pre­sen­ta­tions will be selected by anony­mous review of abstracts.
>    2. We antic­i­pate an abstract sub­mis­sion period from approx­i­mately Octo­ber 2015 through Feb­ru­ary 2016. Spe­cific dates and the pro­ce­dure for abstract sub­mis­sion will be dis­sem­i­nated in a future circular.
>    3. Results of abstract review (acceptance/rejection) will be sent out in April 2016.
>    4. The con­fer­ence web site address is http://blogs.uw.edu/stls2016. The site will be built out with addi­tional con­tent over the next few months. A copy of this cir­cu­lar can be found on the home page.
>    5. If you would like to be added to the mail­ing list for future work­shop announce­ments, please send email to stls2016 at uw.edu with your name and pre­ferred email address.
> Please dis­trib­ute this announce­ment widely to col­leagues, email lists, and other appro­pri­ate venues.
> We look for­ward to wel­com­ing you in Seat­tle next autumn!
> With all best wishes,
> Zev Han­del (on behalf of the STLS-2016 Orga­niz­ing Com­mit­tee)

> * The inau­gural work­shop was hosted in 2008 by the Insti­tute of Lin­guis­tics, Acad­e­mia Sinica (Taipei), the sec­ond in 2010 by the Cen­ter for Chi­nese Lin­guis­tics of Peking Uni­ver­sity (Bei­jing), and the third in 2013 by the Cen­tre National de la Recherche Sci­en­tifique (Paris). The first two work­shops were titled “Tibeto-Burman Lan­guages of Sichuan” and the third “Sino-Tibetan Lan­guages of Sichuan”. The change in title of this fourth work­shop from “Sichuan” to “South­west China” has been made in recog­ni­tion of the fact that many of the lan­guages and lan­guage groups under scrutiny at these work­shops are not con­fined to the provin­cial bor­ders of Sichuan. The name change is a nat­ural out­come of the expanded areal focus seen at the 2013 work­shop, with its spe­cial theme of “Sino-Tibetan lan­guages of Sichuan in their Areal Context”.
> ** The dates for the 22nd Himalayan Lan­guages Sym­po­sium (HLS), to be held in Guwa­hati in 2016, have not yet been set. The 2010–2013 HLS were all held in early Sep­tem­ber. In the event that the dates of the 2016 HLS con­flict with our work­shop dates, we will con­sider resched­ul­ing. See http://www.himalayansymposium.org/ for updates on HLS scheduling.
