We invite submission of abstracts for papers covering all aspects of linguistic research on Sino-Tibetan and other area languages. Papers may treat issues in specific core linguistic areas, they may present field reports, or they may involve research in allied fields, such as prehistory. Papers will be allotted twenty minutes for presentation followed by ten minutes for questions and discussion. The language for presentations will be English.
Abstracts for the main session should be submitted online in pdf format using Easychair (https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=icstll46). Abstracts should be no longer than 350 words in a 12-point, unicode-compliant font, and should be written in English. Authors should take care to remove self-identifying references so that the abstract may be properly reviewed.
The deadline for abstract submission is 17 March 2013. The deadline to submit abstracts has been extended until 7 April 2013.
