Dear Colleagues,

The Fourteenth Annual Conference of the Central and Inner Asia Seminar
(CIAS 2009) will be held at the University of Toronto, Ontario,
Canada, in the Croft Chapter House, University College on Friday and
Saturday May 15-16, 2009.

The proceedings of the conference will be published in due course in
"Toronto Studies in Central and Inner Asia". Volume 10, the papers
from CIAS 2008, will be available before the upcoming conference.

The theme of this year's gathering is "Nomads, Past and Current:
Living on the Move". Scholars from any relevant discipline are
invited to submit proposals for papers.

The time allowance for any presentation is 20 minutes. Please include
the title, a one-page summary and a short copy of your curriculum
vitae and send them, by email, to Professor Michael Gervers at and to Nick Corbett at

The deadline for submissions is December 18, 2008 and those selected
will be notified by email as soon as possible thereafter.

We regret that we do not have the financial resources to help with any
transportation or accommodation costs. However we will do our best to
expedite visa applications and offer hospitality during the conference.

We look forward to receiving many interesting proposals and to hosting
another stimulating and enjoyable conference in Toronto in May.

Please forward this message to anyone else who may be interested. For
further information see The website will be
updated regularly as more information becomes available.
