The South Asian Languages Analysis (SALA) Roundtable is a long-established annual meeting for the dissemination of research of all kinds into the languages of South Asia. The first SALA Roundtable was organised in 1978 at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, and since then SALA has been hosted by a long list of institutions in North America, South Asia, and Europe.

The thirty-first South Asian Languages Analysis Roundtable (SALA-31) will be held at Lancaster University from Thursday 14 May to Saturday 16 May 2015.

SALA-31 aims to present a range of contributions from right across the spectrum of linguistic disciplines, on as inclusive a basis as possible. We consider any kind of descriptive, theoretical, or applied linguistic research concerning one or more of the languages of South Asia – broadly defined – to be within scope for this event.

The following speakers have accepted our invitation to give plenary lectures at SALA-31:

- Miriam Butt
- Carol Genetti
- Sonal Kulkarni-Joshi
- Ulrich Pagel and Nathan Hill
