Meeting Description:

The Cluster on Language Research at the University of California, Davis is pleased to announce the Eighth Annual Symposium on Language Research at UC Davis, which will take place on Friday, May 27th, 2021. As of now (January 2022), the event will take place in-person if the health situation allows it and will consist of a variety of student presentations, keynote speakers, awards, networking and social activities designed to foster community and connection among language researchers from many different backgrounds, institutions and countries. We welcome a wide array of linguistic topics across all disciplines related to the study of languages, as it is our goal to create an open and inclusive symposium which promotes dialogue between all types of language research. This year the Symposium will also include an optional Pre-Conference Workshop, focused on learner corpus research, on Thursday, May 26th.

Please don't hesitate to reach out to if you have any questions regarding the application or the symposium.
