Fourth Circular and Reminder about Abstract Submission

The Fourth Workshop on Sino-Tibetan Languages of Southwest China (STLS-2016) will be held at the University of Washington in Seattle, USA, September 8–10 (Thursday–Saturday), 2016. This is the fourth circular and reminder about abstract submission.

Abstract submission is now open! The deadline for submission is February 29, 2016. To submit your abstract, visit the “Abstract Submission” page of the conference web site. Abstracts may be submitted only via the conference web site. Remember that abstract review is anonymous, so please do not include author names in the abstract or its file name.

Note that all presentations must go through the abstract review process. If you plan to present at the conference, be sure to complete your submission before the end of the month. (Even if you have previously sent me a tentative presentation title, you must still submit an abstract for review.)

Results of abstract review (acceptance/rejection) will be sent out in April 2016. Around that time, another circular will be distributed including information on travel, lodging and registration.

With all best wishes,

Zev Han­del (on behalf of the STLS-2016 Organizing Committee)
