Welcome to the conference homepage

We are pleased to invite you to the Sixth International Conference on Iranian Linguistics.

The ICIL conferences aim to bring together linguistis and philologists of different theoretical backgrounds working on Iranian languages. There are thus only plenary sessions during the conferences in order to allow participants to attend all presentations.
The selection of abstracts is thus necessarily strict (usually some 35 abstracts, plus ca. 10 posters out of far more than 100 submissions).

The ICIL organisers have also published peer-reviewed collections of articles emerging from the conferences, which underline the approach of integrating the various disciplines.
