The aim of this conference is to provide an open and widely accessible

students, with research issues from all fields of Linguistics and TESOL.

The main feature that distinguishes this conference is its focus on freedom:
Freedom from linguistic sub-field divisions;
Freedom from an established and rigid theme for presentations;
Freedom from fees!

presentations, or hot topics.

Single papers: Papers will be 40 minutes in length, with 30 minutes for
