Meeting Description:

The University of Ottawa linguistics department is pleased to announce that
it will be hosting its second annual Ottawa's Conference for Linguistics
Undergraduates (OCLU) on December 3rd and 4th 2010! The goals of this
conference are to promote undergraduate research and further the growth
of the undergraduate linguistics community.

This conference has a couple of purposes. The first, and most important, is
to give undergraduate researchers the chance to present their original
work. With competition for graduate school growing, it has become
increasingly important for undergraduates to be able to speak in front of
peer scholars, take constructive feedback and develop strong networking
abilities. The aim of this conference is to do all three of these by allowing
undergraduates, both nationally and internationally, the opportunity to meet
and share their work with others.

Secondly, this conference will provide the opportunity for potential graduate
students to view our facilities and labs, meet our professors, speak with
current undergraduate and graduate students, and experience the city of

Call For Papers

submitted online as a Word document to ottawa.undergradcongmail.com
by Friday, October 29th, 2010. If you have any questions, kindly direct
