The 6th Biennial International Conference on the Linguistics of Contemporary English (BICLCE) will take place in August 2015, and will be hosted by the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Traditionally, syntax (specifically constructions), sociolinguistics, and discourse analysis are three of the focus areas of the conference.

Joan Houston Hall (The Dictionary of American Regional English, University of Wisconsin-Madison)
Lars Hinrichs (University of Texas at Austin)
Mark Seidenberg (University of Wisconsin-Madison)
