Meeting Description:

SCULC (Southern California Undergraduate Linguistics Conference) will be held again in April 2019 at the University of California, Los Angeles by the Linguistics Department and the undergraduate-run linguistics society, Bruin Linguists Society. Founded in 2010 by Bruin Linguists, SCULC was established to create a collaborative and educational environment for the undergraduate linguistics community. Throughout the years, it has been entirely student-run and free for all participants, presenters, and guests, supported by contributions from the linguistics community, the UCLA Linguistics Department, and individuals working to help enhance and expand the experience of undergraduates in linguistics. Undergraduate students at all levels are encouraged to submit abstracts for 10-15 minute presentations or for a poster session. Students who have recently graduated but have not yet entered a graduate program are welcome to submit abstracts. You can submit abstracts for both a presentation and a poster but they must be on different research projects. We also invite graduate students, lecturers, and other researchers to submit proposals for keynote talks.
