We would like to thank all of the contributors so far to our project on cataloguing endangered sign languages (CESL). Their expertise and data, along with the efforts of our project committee, have led to very interesting first results which are summarised in this report.

Our project committee met on 22 July to discuss the continuation of our work on assessing, cataloguing and mapping endangered sign languages. We were especially pleased to have with us two of our external committee members, Kang-Suk Byun and Josefina Safar.
