Dear Friends of Uto-Aztecan languages,
This year, we are pleased to host the annual Friends of Uto-Aztecan Conference (FUAC) in Boise, Idaho, on the Boise State University campus in conjunction with the Western Conference on Linguistics (WECOL, see attached flier), October 20-22. FUAC itself will take place on Friday, October 20 (and possibly the morning of October 21, depending upon the level of interest).
The deadline for abstracts for FUAC is June 15, 2017. Abstracts can be on any topic in linguistics relating to Uto-Aztecan languages (and their neighbors). Registration fees will cover attendance at both FUAC and WECOL sessions (with the addition of a FUAC-only optional fee for a Friday evening dinner on the Basque Block in beautiful downtown Boise with your fellow FUACers).
October is a beautiful time of the year to visit Boise. The weather is still reasonably mild and the trees are still turning. The Boise State campus is located directly across the Boise River from parks, the zoo, museums, and downtown, and so friends, companions, and kids will not be bored! If there is interest, we’ll also organize a hike into the Boise foothills that weekend.
Thank you, and hope to see you in Boise!
Sincerely, Tim Thornes
