On March 11 the Tohoku region of Japan was hit by a massive earthquake which caused a tsunami and problems with several nuclear plants. Despite lasting damage to afflicted areas, the venue city of Kyoto is located far from the epicenter and was not directly affected. We therefore do not expect the conference to be affected by this tragic disaster.

Student Support Applications
As was previously announced, we are happy to be able to offer financial assistance to students attending the conference to present their own work. Any student who has (a) had a paper accepted to either the main conference or one of the workshops (both poster and oral presentations qualify), and (b) does not already have full funding to attend the conference from some other source, is eligible to apply.
The exact amount of assistance we will be able to provide per student will be determined by the overall number of applications we receive, but we anticipate it will be several hundred euros for international students, and slightly less for domestic students.
To apply for this assistance please send an email including both your full name and the title of your accepted paper to firstname.lastname@example.org (Updated) by 10 February 2012. Please note, recipients will be asked to write a short review of the conference for publication on the evolang website.
