Meeting Description: The University of Texas at Arlington Student Conference in Linguistics & TESOL is a student-led conference specifically designed to give graduate and undergraduate students a chance to present their original research. This is a great opportunity to join students from across America and around the world to present research on language.

The keynote speaker will be Dr. Robert Fiorentino. Dr. Fiorentino received his PhD in linguistics from the University of Maryland, College Park in 2006, and is currently associate professor in the Department of Linguistics at the University of Kansas. His research involves both psycholinguistics and neurolinguistics, and he has used techniques such as MEG, EEG, and fMRI in his work. More information about Dr. Fiorentino can be found at http://people.ku.edu/~fiore355/.

The University of Texas at Arlington (UTA) is located in Arlington, Texas, situated between Dallas and Fort Worth. Arlington is easily accessible by two major airports: DFW and Love Field. Discounted hotels in Arlington will be available for the conference, and some limited space will be available to stay with students on a first come, first served basis.
