In January 2006, Bernd Heine (University of Cologne) and Rainer Vossen (Goethe University of Frankfurt/Main) organised the Second International Symposium on Khoisan Languages and Linguistics in Riezlern/Kleinwalsertal, Austria. About thirty international researchers attended the meeting which was dedicated to the late Pastor Eliphas Eiseb (1918–2005), co-author of the renowned Khoekhoegowab Dictionary (published in 2002). 27 papers were presented on various aspects of Khoisan linguistics.

However, the proceedings which are now being published as a result of the symposium do not include all the contributions, but a selection of papers which touch upon problems of Khoisan phonology (Exter), tonology (Elderkin, Haacke, Honken, Naumann), morpho-syntax (Chebanne, Eaton, Kiessling, König), sociolinguistics (Monaka & Lepekoane) and ethnolinguistics (Takada) as well as cognitive linguistics (Brenzinger).
