Meeting Description:

The StuTS is an independently organised German (and partially English) conference, which covers a wide range of linguistic disciplines. It is held once every semester. Universities in and around Germany take turns hosting the StuTS. Its goal is to offer students of all linguistic subjects an opportunity to get to know one another and to exchange opinions.

The StuTS sets its focus on scientific research as well as on social activities among students. Students can give talks on a particular topic of their own research, their thesis or their subject in general, or hold a language tutorial. The StuTS offers the unique chance to practise presenting ideas without the pressure of a lecture course or famous experts being present.

As a highlight of the conference, the organisational committee will invite keynote speakers, usually acclaimed professors of the local university. These can represent the university's research profile and present their research to other universities' students.

Finally, the external students get the chance to get to know the place and people of the hosting university through city or campus tours and at the party and the brunch at the end.

Call for Papers:

StuTS Z├╝rich invites all students, be it Bachelors, Masters or PhD to contribute to the program of the 61st Studentische Tagung Sprachwissenschaft, an independently organised German (and partially English language) conference covering a wide range of linguistic disciplines.
