The 52nd International Conference on Sino-Tibetan Languages and 
Linguistics will be held in conjunction with the 25th Himalayan 
Languages Symposium from June 24-29, 2019, at the University of Sydney’s 
Camperdown Campus. Both conferences will be hosted by the University of 
Sydney Department of Linguistics, and co-organized by Mark W. Post, 
Gwendolyn Hyslop and Yankee Modi (plus volunteers!).

The schedule will be as follows:

June 24-26         ICSTLL52 (Confirmed plenary speakers Tian-Shin 
Jackson Sun and James A. Matisoff)

June 27               Combined ICSTLL/HLS Themed Workshops

June 28-29         HLS25 (Confirmed plenary speakers George van Driem 
and Jade d'Alpiom Guedes)

The abstract submissions processes for ICSTLL52 and HLS25 will be 
distinct, and it is possible (and encouraged) to submit a maximum of one 
single-authored and one co-authored paper to each conference. In both 
cases, abstracts should be no more than 500 words, single-spaced, 
exclusive of data and references (if any). Please write your abstract in 

Please submit your ICSTLL52 abstract(s) at: 

Please submit your HLS25 abstract(s) at: 

In both cases, the abstract submission deadline is April 5, 2019.

To submit a Workshop Proposal, please send a Workshop Description of no 
more than one sheet of A4-sized paper (plus an additional sheet for data 
and references, if any) to ICSTLL52HLS25 at gmail.com before December 20, 
2018. Notification will be approximately two weeks afterward. Workshop 
Organizers should manage their own calls for papers or other recruitment 
mechanisms, and be prepared to supply a revised Workshop Description and 
Schedule by May 15, 2019.

In observance of 2019 as the UNESCO International Year of Indigenous 
Languages, we particularly welcome papers specifically addressing the 
study and conservation of the many minority and Indigenous languages 
falling within the Sino-Tibetan/Trans-Himalayan area, and papers 
authored by a native member of a minority or Indigenous language 
community within this area. To facilitate this, a number of travel 
bursaries will be made available for (a) scholars and/or students from 
Southeast Asian nations (b) scholars and/or students who are native 
speakers/members of a minority and/or Indigenous language/community of 
Mainland Asia, prioritizing languages/communities of the Himalayan 
region (broadly defined). Application for travel bursaries will take 
place after the abstract selection process; only authors of papers whose 
abstracts have been accepted for presentation at the conference will be 
invited to apply.

For further information (which will be updated on an ongoing basis), 
please visit the conference website at

to ICSTLL52HLS25 at gmail.com.

We look forward to welcoming you to Sydney!!
