Please keep your conference announcement as short as you can; LINGUIST will not post conference announcements which in our opinion are excessively long. Also, please remember that, once posted, your announcement will be permanently available at our website: For this reason, we discourage multiple submissions of the same conference announcement. Thank you for your cooperation.

Location: The conference will be held in the D-house on the Linkoping
University campus in room D205.

Getting to the University campus from the central station (resecentrum):
Take bus 202 that leaves the central station in the direction of Lambohov.
Ask the driver to let you off at the second university bus stop. You will
see red brick buildings across the road from the bus stop on both sides of
a large parking lot. Stay to the right when passing the parking lot while
approaching the red brick buildings. The first building you come to will
bear the letter "T". Keep going. The next building will bear the letter
"D". Enter the D-house and take the first corridor to the right. Room D205
is towards the middle of the corridor.
