Fifth Biennial International Colloquium on the Chadic Languages (Afroasiatic)

To be held at the University of Leipzig, Germany
June 10 - 14, 2009

This Fifth Colloquium continues the series of Leipzig (2001), Prague (2003),
Villejuif/Paris (2005), and Bayreuth (2007), taking up two discontinued
traditions (the series of Leiden 1976, Hamburg 1981, Boulder 1987) and the
Franco-German meetings in Paris (Groupe d'Etudes tchadiques, 1980 - 1997). It is
devoted to all aspects of Chadic linguistics, in particular:

- Descriptive linguistics of individual Chadic languages
- Comparative linguistics of Chadic languages
- Typology of Chadic languages
- Hausa linguistics
- The position of Chadic within Afroasiatic
- Chadic languages in contact with non-Chadic languages

The year in which the Fifth Colloquium will take place coincides with that of
both the 600th anniversary of the University of Leipzig which was established in
the year 1409 and the retirement of H. Ekkehard Wolff from the Chair of
Afrikanistik at this university which he took over in 1994.

The venue of the Colloquium will be at the Villa Tillmanns which serves as
university guest house within walking distance from the city centre. This guest
house also provides single and double rooms for participants of the Colloquium
from Wednesday (arrival) to Sunday (departure).

university's 600th anniversary, early registration for accommodation is highly
recommended (also for non-university guest house accommodation, if preferred or
