Meeting Description:

The purpose of the GSFL Roundtable is to provide researchers, teachers, and practitioners working within forensic linguistics the opportunity to present and discuss their work within an interdisciplinary, collegial setting.

Academics, professionals, and students who are interested in attending the conference without presenting a paper or a poster are more than welcome. However, space is limited and will be awarded on a first come first serve basis. In addition, given the seriousness of the topics and the
graphic imagery which may be presented during the conference, all attendees must be at least 18 years of age.
