ULAB2015 at York St John University

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. The conference contains other elements besides papers: there is also an AGM (annual general meeting) to elect the new national committee of ULAB, to ratify the new constitution, and to select the next venue. Following our success in 2015, ULAB2016 will be held at the University of Aberdeen.

ULAB 2015 was held at York St John University and was officially the biggest ULAB ever. Thanks to all the hardworking people on both executive and local committees, they pulled together to create a conference over twice as big as ULAB 2014.

This year had seen the inclusion of workshops and a postgraduate panel, it also has plenary speakers from across the country in different fields in order to maximise our reach across the spectrum of linguistics. We also invited colleges from across the UK to visit ULAB in order to inspire the next set of undergraduate linguists.

ULAB 2015 gave away free conference t-shirts, a free conference bag,  free conference stationery and a customary ULAB 2015 USB card, free of course. In keeping with previous ULAB conferences, there was a conference dinner on Saturday evening at an all-you-can-eat high-quality world buffet.

We’d like to thank all the people who make ULAB possible: the people who are willing to showcase their own valuable research at an international conference. Without you – the presenters and the delegates – ULAB would not be possible. We know that ULAB 2015 will be unforgettable, and that’s down to both ULAB and you.
