Meeting Description:

The first Experiments in Linguistic Meaning (ELM) conference will be hosted virtually by the University of Pennsylvania, September 16-18, 2020. The conference is dedicated to the experimental study of linguistic meaning broadly construed, with a focus on theoretical issues in semantics and pragmatics, their interplay with other components of the grammar, their relation to language processing and acquisition, as well as their connections to human cognition and computation. ELM aims to include representation of linguistic, psychological, logical, philosophical, social, developmental, computational, as well as cross-linguistic and cross-cultural perspectives.

Registration is free but required. If you would like to attend, please register as soon as possible:

ELM was conceived as a biennial meeting to foster the interdisciplinary study of meaning, and to create a community of scholars that might not otherwise meet and interact with each other with regularity. We hope that this year’s virtual ELM will provide a truly interactive, community-building experience, including different types of synchronous and asynchronous exchanges before, during, and after the conference, as well as pop-up mentoring opportunities.

Finally, we are pleased to announce that Proceedings from ELM will be available from the Linguistic Society of America as an open-access publication:

We are looking forward to seeing you there!

ELM Co-Organizers
