ALS 2020 Online Conference

Building bridges


The 2020 Conference of the Australian Linguistic Society (ALS) will take place online on 14 and 15 December 2020. Our theme this year is 'Building Bridges'. We acknowledge the talented Sana Bharadwaj who created a logo to commemorate our first-ever online conference.

The general programme will welcome contributions from all areas of linguistics. It will also include two keynote presentations, pre-recorded video papers, live panel discussions, a public event as well as live social events and a series of NEXT GEN sessions for HDR and ECR members.

Confirmed keynotes: 

  • Umberto Ansaldo (University of Sydney / Curtin University)
  • Anne Charity Hudley (University of California, Santa Barbara)

Our first call for papers has now gone out. See Call for Papers on this site. Presenters and panel conveners will need to be ALS members. The option of attendance only will also be open to non-members this year.

Stay tuned. We look forward to hearing from you!
