ISMIL is an annual event whose goal is the advancement of scholarship in Malay/Indonesian Linguistics, through the bringing together of linguists from Malay and Indonesian speaking countries and their colleagues in other parts of the world.
Papers presented at ISMIL are concerned with the Malay/Indonesian language in any of its varieties. In addition to the standardized versions of Bahasa Melayu and Bahasa Indonesia, papers are particularly welcome dealing with non-canonical isolects such as regional dialects of Malay and Indonesian, contact varieties, and other closely related Malayic languages. Papers may be in any of the subfields of linguistics, and may represent variegated approaches and diverse theoretical persuasions. Presentations at ISMIL are delivered in English, as is befitting an international symposium.
Persons wishing to present a paper at the symposium are invited to upload a one-page abstract in electronic form (preferably pdf, but MsWord also acceptable). Potential participants who need more time for travel arrangements and visa applications may submit their abstracts at any time, and will receive early notification of acceptance/rejection. Limited funds are available for partial support of travel expenses for worthy applicants. If you wish to apply for such support, please check the appropriate box in the abstract upload application form online.
