Subject: Deadline extension for joint HLS25/ICSTLL52 Workshop proposals -- 20 February 2019

Dear Randy,
Could you help me post the following to the TB List, pretty please?
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, James A. Matisoff, and Scott DeLancey)
June 27               Combined ICSTLL/HLS Themed Workshops
June 28-29         HLS25 (Confirmed plenary speakers George van Driem and Jade d'Alpoim 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 English. 
Please submit your ICSTLL52 abstract(s) at: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=icstll52
Please submit your HLS25 abstract(s) at: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=hls25
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 February 20, 2019. 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 https://sites.google.com/view/icstll52hls25/home, and/or send an email to ICSTLL52HLS25 at gmail.com.
We look forward to welcoming you to Sydney!!
