Meeting Description:

GLOW in Asia offers a forum for presentation and discussion of advanced research in theoretical linguistics. Its conferences take place within Asia but attract participants from all over the world. As a new event that constitutes part of these GLOW in Asia conferences, Mie University (Japan) holds GLOW in Asia Workshop for Young Scholars on September 7-8, 2011. The goal of this workshop is to provide an occasion for graduate students and post-doctoral researchers, the majority of whom are expected to be from Asia, to present their research, share new ideas and findings, and discuss their issues with participants and distinguished invited speakers from various places.

Invited Speakers:

Željko Bošković (University of Connecticut)
Ayesha Kidwai (Jawahar Lal Nehru University)
Mamoru Saito (Nanzan University)
Wei-Tien Dylan Tsai (National Tsing Hua University)

2nd Call for Papers:

Deadline Extended!

Abstract submissions are invited for oral or poster presentation on any aspect of theoretical linguistics. Each oral presentation will be allotted 20 minutes, followed by 10 minutes for discussion.

(This restriction applies not only to the first author but also to the co-authors.) We anticipate that funds will be available for presenters as some form of subsidy for travel and/or accommodation expenses. Details regarding financial support will be finalized after presenters are accepted. Proceedings for the presented papers and posters will be published online.
