A joint meeting of 30-04-2024 between the UPNG-based LSPNG Executive members and the Conference Organizing Committee from the University of Goroka, led by Dr. Sakaya Botu, the Executive Dean SHSS UOG and by Dr. Philip Tama, HOD Linguistics UOG, discussed the COC's progress in organizing this year's LSPNG Conference.


In view of an unfortunate confluence of logistical difficulties, caused by the 2022 earthquake and related serious security issues, currently experienced in Goroka, the meeting concluded that, despite the UOG COC's enthusiasm and interest in hosting our conference this year, the situation on the ground calls for a deferral of this year’s conference until next year, 2025.


This, therefore, is the official notification of the LSPNG Executive decision regarding this matter. LSPNG 2025 will be hosted by the University of Goroka, Goroka, EHP in September 2025.
