The annual Conference on Asian Linguistic Anthropology has become the global focus for Asian Linguistic Anthropology and Sociolinguistics, through its commitment to its networks, and to bodies globally working on Asian contexts. The annual conference has been held for close to ten years, garnering scholars the world over. Each GLOCAL CALA conference accommodates several hundred presenters, roundtables, booths and displays, cultural performances, workshops, keynote talks by prominent scholars, anthropological excursions, and other categories. The CALA collaborates with a new university annually to host each conference. The previous hosts and other information are available on the GLOCAL website.
