Meeting Description: The Linguistic Evidence conference series has since 2004 been a meeting place for linguists who wish to improve the empirical adequacy of linguistic theory and linguistic analysis.

Interdisciplinary work in which linguistics cooperate with academics in adjacent fields is particularly welcome.
