The Fourth International Conference on Iranian Linguistics (ICIL4) Uppsala University, Department of Linguistics and Philology, Iranian languages, June 17-19, 2011The purpose of this bi-annual conference is to bring together researchers from the full range of Iranian linguistics, including formal theoretical studies, computational linguistics, neurolinguistics, typological and functional research, corpus linguistics, as well as diachronic and areal perspectives. Much attention is paid to keep a balance between all these fields, and also to include as wide a variety as possible of Iranian languages. The conference gives scholars a chance to present their research and to interact with other researchers, something which is very precious, particularly in a discipline where there is research at only few universities in each country (or only one, as in Sweden). We also hope to be able to publish the most qualified presentations as a conference volume after the conference.Previous conferences have been held in Leipzig, Hamburg and Paris.
