Conference: SULA 10

Semantics of Under-Represented Languages in the Americas (SULA) 10 will be held at the University of Toronto, 4-6 May 2018.

The goal of the conference is to bring together researchers working on languages or dialects spoken in the Americas which do not have an established tradition of work in formal semantics. We especially encourage abstract submissions from those whose work involves primary fieldwork or experimentation as well as analysis. We strongly encourage the participation of graduate students.

The conference proceedings will appear as a volume published by the GLSA.
