The 15th IACL & The 19th NACCL Joint Conference (2007)

Call for Paper

The joint conference of the 15th Annual Meeting of the International Association of Chinese Linguistics (IACL) and 19th Annual North American Conference on Chinese Linguistics (NACCL) will be held on May 25-27 at Columbia University in New York City. Entrusted by the Executive Committee of the International Association of Chinese Linguistics and the coordinator of the North American Conference on Chinese Linguistics, the Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures at Columbia University will be hosting this joint conference. The organizing committee intends to invite 150 to 200 scholars to attend the conference. This will be the largest conference on Chinese linguistics held outside China.

To promote, recognize, and reward young scholars in the field, the IACL has set up the "Young Scholar Award" and "Mantaro J. Hashimoto Award." A “young scholar” is someone who is 35 years of age or below and whose current rank is below that of associate professor in the Chinese and American university systems and below that of senior lecturer in the British system. Nominated finalists will be invited to attend the conference and receive $500 of travel subsidies. Only members of IACL are eligible to participate in the competition; non-members must be prepared to join IACL at the time of participation.

Those who intend to present a paper at the Conference should send an abstract to the organizing committee by December 31, 2006.

Those who intend to compete for the two awards should send both abstract and full-paper by December 28, 2006

E-mail submission is acceptable. If sent by regular mail, it should be postmarked before the above deadlines.

The abstract and full-paper can be written in either Chinese or English. In Chinese, please use the Songti font in small 4 or Mingti in thin 12. In English, please use the Times New Roman font in size 12. All submitted abstracts should be less than one page in length, and full papers should not exceed 25 pages. Two copies of the abstract (including abstracts for the Young Scholar Award and Mantaro J. Hashimoto Award competition) must be submitted. One should be anonymous, while the other should present the name of the author, academic affiliation, subject area (e.g. phonology, syntax, etc), and contact information (email and postal address).

Please submit your electronic text in Microsoft Word format or in PDF format if special characters and graphs are imbedded.

Notice of acceptance for general paper will be announced on Feburary 26, 2007. Notice of shortlist to compete for Young Scholar Award / Mantaro J. Hashimoto Award will be announced on March 5, 2007.

Please return confirmation of attendance to the organizing committee by April 10, 2007. 

Conference participants should arrive at Columbia University on May 24, 2007. Paper presentations and panel discussions will take place from the 25th through the 27th. The conference will end in the afternoon of the 27th.

Since its establishment more than 100 years ago, the Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures at Columbia University has been dedicated to the promotion of research on Chinese linguistics and the instruction of Chinese language. In recent years, the department has successfully organized a number of large scale international conferences, such as the First and Second International Conference on Research and Pedagogy in Classical Chinese and Chinese Language History, and the Third International Conference on Technology and Chinese Instruction.

The conference organizing committee is looking forward to the participation of all fellow colleagues in the field who are committed to the research and teaching of Chinese.
