General information

ULAB is a conference for linguistics, you do not have to present to be a delegate but you will still have to register. To present at ULAB you will have to submit an abstract, however if you’re not keen on presenting your paper, you are welcome to take part in the poster session. There will be a poster display throughout the two days so people can look at them during the breaks. You can also take part if you are presenting your paper, since we will probably have simultaneous sessions going on, some people might not be able to come to your talk and it would be nice for them to be able see a poster about it.

The conference contains other elements besides papers: there will also be an AGM (annual general meeting) to elect the new national committee of ULAB, to ratify the new constitution, and to select the next venue. If you wish your university to host ULAB 2016, you will be given a chance at the AGM to make a proposal and it will be voted on by everyone present. Apart from the formal parts of the conference, there will also be a meet and greet, a meal, other chances to socialise and explore the city.

Further information will be available closer to the conference, if you have any questions, please contact us.
