Meeting Description:

The aim of the conference is to provide a platform for postgraduate
students from a range of disciplines to present new research to an
interested and friendly audience. The scope of the conference is
deliberately broader than that currently offered at post-graduate
level, and in this way we aim to create a forum for interdisciplinary
discussion, bringing together the disparate threads of research in
language.
