The first SCCC met in Paris in September 2016 and was followed up by smaller meetings in North America and the second SCCC in Tbilisi in 2018. Following up on its general theme, SCCC-3 will bring together linguists working on different aspects of the scientific study of language and experts in Georgian and South Caucasian (Kartvelian) languages. Its primary goal is to promote a dialogue between scholars from different approaches and to bring together established and junior scholars all of whom are invested in linguistic studies of the South Caucasus.

As in the prior meetings, we will place emphasis on tutorials, poster sessions, and round tables, to create as much space for informal discussions as possible.

This year’s SCCC will also host a one-day workshop on languages of the entire Caucasus region.
