We are pleased to announce that the 50th Annual International Conference on Salish and Neighbouring Languages (ICSNL) will be held from August 5–7, 2015 at the University of British Columbia, jointly hosted by UBC and the Simon Fraser University First Nations Language Centre.
The International Conference on Salish and Neighbouring Languages is the conference of record for linguists working on languages of the North American Northwest. Papers on all aspects of the study, preservation, and teaching of Salish and neighbouring languages are welcome.
