The 12th meeting of the Association for Linguistic Typology will be held at the Australian National University, Canberra, Australia from 12th to 14th December. The preceding day (11th) will feature typological teach-ins on three language families: Australian, Papuan and Austronesian. The Friday after the conference (15th) will be reserved for workshops. There will also be a slot for poster sessions. We encourage attendees to come for this whole week.
