Meeting Description:

SCULC (Southern California Undergraduate Linguistics Conference) will be held again in May 2022 at the University of California, Los Angeles by the Linguistics Department and the undergraduate-run linguistics society, the Bruin Linguists Society. Founded in 2010 by Bruin Linguists, SCULC was established to create a collaborative and educational environment for the undergraduate linguistics community. Throughout the years, it has been entirely student-run and free for all participants, presenters, and guests, supported by contributions from the linguistics community, the UCLA Linguistics Department, and individuals working to help enhance and expand the experience of undergraduates in linguistics.

Call for Papers:

SCULC is looking for undergraduate presenters from any university to submit their research for presentation. Undergraduate students at all levels are encouraged to submit abstracts for 10-15 minute oral presentations or for a poster session. Students who have recently graduated but have not yet entered a graduate program are welcome to submit abstracts. You can submit abstracts for both oral and poster presentations but they must be on different research projects. Please note that we also welcome submissions on research that is still in progress. We also invite graduate students, lecturers, and other researchers to submit proposals for keynote talks. Please email us at before submitting your keynote abstract to our Call for Abstracts.

Abstract Submission Guidelines:
- Please submit an abstract for your research work by Saturday, March 26, 2022 11:59 PST. See our website ( for abstract submissions via easychair.
- Research from all subfields, in both applied and theoretical work, are welcome. Research in progress is fine too.
- The abstract should be no more than 500 words, not including references.
- Please make sure the abstract is in a PDF format and that there is no identification of yourself in the abstract (anonymized submission).
- If you are submitting something as part of work on a greater research project with a team or a professor, be prepared to submit verification from the PI (person in charge) that they are aware you are submitting this work if your abstract is accepted.

Abstracts that do not follow these guidelines will not be considered. Accepted submissions will be announced in early to mid-April. Please keep in mind that these abstracts and potential presentations will not be published. Travel expenses are the responsibility of the presenter.
