Abstract submission finished; Language Science Pecha Kucha announced

The abstract submission period for the conference has ended. The results of the abstract evaluation, along with feedback from the scientific committee, will be communicated to the authors during the first week of March.

Incidentally, we are pleased to announce an event in addition to The Why Linguistics Conference: a Language Science Pecha Kucha workshop. This parallel workshop serves as a counterpoint to the emphasized reflexive nature - why linguistics? - of the main conference. The gist of the event is, namely, to present your personal research topic in a short, simple, concentrated from, while keeping it accessible to the interdisciplinary audience of the conference, thus enabling feedback from different angles and fields, both academic and industrial. As such, there are no restrictions on the topic, as long as it is related to research on (or applications of) human language. As with the main conference, we naturally welcome linguists, but also researchers from other fields like language psychology, communication studies, cognitive science, artificial intelligence, etc. We also very much encourage young researchers about to complete a degree to participate in the workshop (for example: why not get feedback on your soon to be defended master's thesis?).
