Back in April I asked all of you to contribute your cogitations to this year's conferences survey - courtesy of the dedicated team at the Sociolinguistic Events Calendar! (

And now......... the results are in! As with our previous surveys (, I've written up this year's into a fancy looking report for all to enjoy:

Download it and set it as your desktop wallpaper. Print it out and stick it to your office door. Distribute copies to your colleagues. Print it on A1 sheets and wear it as a fetching gown. Whatever you do, get the word out, because the word is more childcare at conferences! The report even comes with some little tips about how to actually go about it, from those who know. It's not rocket surgery folks; we can do this!

Please forward this on far and wide to whoever may or may not be interested in it.

Consider retweeting this tweet as well .

Calendrically yours,
Dave (on behalf of the Sociolinguistic Events Calendar team)
