Meeting Description:

The University of Toronto's Society of Linguistics Undergraduate Students (SLUGS) is excited to announce its 14th annual Toronto Undergraduate Linguistics Conference (TULCON), to be held on 6 - 7 March 2021! The conference will be held online via Gather this year due to the current circumstances.

TULCON is a conference run by undergrads highlighting undergrad research. It is a fantastic opportunity for undergraduate linguists to meet their peers and get valuable experience presenting their own work.

Call for Papers:

We are looking for any original research conducted by an undergraduate on a topic related to linguistics. These can come from final papers from courses or independent research or anywhere else!

Abstract Requirements:
One page, single space, 12pt Times New Roman (excludes citations). Please submit as PDFs. Please do not include your name or affiliation on the abstract. This is so reviews can remain anonymous.

Please send all abstracts and include “TULCON14 Abstract” in the subject line. In the body of the e-mail, please also include the following information:
1. Title of abstract
2. Area of linguistics addressed by the abstract (e.g., syntax, phonology, psycholinguistics, etc.)
3. Name(s) and affiliation(s) of presenter(s)
4. E-mail address of each presenter

In previous years, we held both talks and a poster session, however due to the limitations of the digital medium, we will be unable to hold our poster session this year. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope that it will be possible again in the near future.

Accepted speakers for talks will have the opportunity to present for 20 minutes, followed by an additional five-minute question period.

As this year’s conference will be online, we welcome undergraduate students from all around the world to submit to the conference and participate. Please feel free to let us know in your email if you require any specific accommodations so that we may prepare them in advance.
