Conference Dates: March 2-4, 2018

Due to popular demand and in light of an additional funding opportunity*, the Call for Papers for ConCALL-3 has been EXTENDED until Sunday, December 3, 2017.

This spring, the Center for Languages of the Central Asian Region (CeLCAR) will be hosting the 3rd Conference of Central Asian Language and Linguistics (ConCALL-3) at Indiana University March 2-4, 2018.

Keynote Speakers for the conference include leading names in Turkic and Iranian linguistics, as well as second language acquisition and heritage language learning:

Jason Rothman, Professor of Literacy and Multilingualism, University of Reading, UK
Vera Gribanova, Assistant Professor of Linguistics, Stanford University
Pollet Samvelian, Professor of Linguistics, Université Sorbonne Nouvelle
Mehmet Yavaş, Professor of Linguistics, Florida International University
Rex Sprouse, Professor of Second Language Studies, Indiana University

We also expect to have additional guest speakers, including in Mongolic and Tibetan languages and linguistics.

We are accepting submissions for 20-minute paper presentations (with 10 minute post-presentation questions and discussion) on topics related to Central Asian languages and linguistics, including both the Altaic and Eastern Indo-European languages spoken in the region (among others), a diverse range of languages such as Azerbaijani, Dari, Kazakh, Kyrgyz, Mongolian, Pashto, Persian, Tajiki, Tibetan, Turkish, Turkmen, Tuvan, Uyghur, Uzbek, and more. Submissions on endangered Central Asian languages are especially welcome.

Presenters will have the opportunity to submit to the published proceedings of the conference.

Submissions can include, but are not limited to:
- Formal linguistics (phonology, morphology, syntax and semantics, as well as their interfaces)
- Acquisition (first and second language acquisition)
- Language education/pedagogy, as related to Central Asian languages

Each abstract will be anonymously reviewed by four-five external reviewers working on the same field and/or same/similar languages and evaluated on a basis of interest, originality, timeliness, and relevance to the field, as well as reviewing the methodology and data collection methods and overall clarity and organization of ideas.

Submissions should consist of an anonymous titled abstract of no more than 500 words (not including examples and references, which can be placed on a second page) submitted via EasyAbs (http://linguistlist.org/easyabs/ConCALL3) by Sunday, December 3, 2017.

Stipends will be awarded to the graduate students with the highest-rated abstract submissions.
