Short description:

This conference has three goals: (i) To discuss some results from the APiCS project database in advance of publication (scheduled for 2011/2012), (ii) to present this project to interested linguists who are not participants of the project, and (iii) more generally, to discuss the properties of creole and pidgin languages against a typological background.
