Meeting Description:

The next Conference on Multilingualism 2021 (COM2021) will be hosted by the Department of Linguistics and the Centre for Multilingualism at the University of Konstanz (Germany) from 23 - 25 June 2021.

The Conference on Multilingualism has its origin in 2005 at the University of Trento, where it was known under the name of “Workshop on Bilingualism”. In 2016, the conference was renamed to “Conference on Multilingualism” in order to include a broader range of aspects of multilingualism. It is aimed at exploring the many different aspects of multilingualism in the fields of linguistics, psychology, neurology, sociology and educational sciences. In the past, it was held in Ghent, in Leiden, and in Reading. In 2021 it is coming to Konstanz.

***Given the continuing travel restrictions and uncertainty due to COVID-19 we have decided to host COM2021 online.***

We are very pleased to announce our keynote speakers:
Francis M. Hult (University of Maryland, Baltimore County, USA)
Tanja Rinker (Catholic University Eichstätt-Ingolstadt, Germany)
