The Undergraduate Linguistics Association of Britain (ULAB), in

Language Society invites all students, whether at the undergraduate or
post-graduate level, to a two day conference which will be held at the
University of Edinburgh on the weekend of 26-27 March 2011, with an
opening night on Friday 25 March.

ULAB was founded this year with the intention of bringing together students
of linguistics and related disciplines in the UK in an academic setting, to

those who are unfamiliar with public speaking.
