Meeting Description:

The Formal Approaches to Mayan Linguistics (FAMLi) Workshop aims to bring together linguists to present work on contemporary Mayan languages and tackle new and outstanding puzzles in the field. FAMLi encourages participation from researchers working in any linguistic framework, and with any level of formal linguistic background, to present data and analyses of Mayan languages. By attracting a diverse group of participants, FAMLi hopes to facilitate communication between Mayan language researchers, and to create contacts between Mayan scholars and the broader theoretical community.

Invited Speakers:

Judith Aissen (UCSC)
Heriberto Avelino (Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology)
Ximena Lois (University of Michigan)
B'alam Mateo Toledo (CIESAS)
Norvin Richards (MIT)

The FAMLi program is now available on the conference website. Registration is free when received by March 1st

Call for Papers:

In addition to five invited talks, FAMLi is accepting abstracts for presentations and posters in English or Spanish. Presentations should provide a formal analysis in any subfield of Mayan linguistics. The poster session will be devoted to work on language revitalization, and to detailed descriptions of grammatical phenomena and puzzles in Mayan languages. FAMLi especially encourages abstract submissions from native speakers of Mayan languages.

Abstracts should be one page in length (1 inch margins, at least 11 point font), with an additional page for data and references. Abstracts will be accepted in either English or Spanish. Abstracts should be submitted via Easy Abs: http://linguistlist.org/confcustom/famli2010

Thanks to a generous grant from the National Science Foundation, FAMLi has funding to assist with travel and lodging for participants with little or no institutional support. Special priority will be given to native speaker participants.
