CLAUSE (Canadian Linguistics Annual Undergraduate Conference) is a conference for undergraduate research ran by the Society of Linguistic Undergraduates of McGill (SLUM) and the Concordia Linguistics Student Association (LSA).
Any current undergraduate student who is completing/has completed original research in linguistics and related fields (psycholinguistics, speech pathology, computational linguistics, sociolinguistics, etc.) is encouraged to submit, as are recent graduates who completed research while completing their degree. We are emailing in the case that students at the University would be interested in attending or presenting their work.
Although we are based in Montreal, we do have a few presenters travelling every year. It’s a wonderful opportunity to network, learn about academic research and what conferences are typically like, and to broaden your knowledge of the field. Presenting your work to peers is a valuable skill if you plan on continuing in research, and a large part of our mandate is to provide undergraduates with the opportunities and resources to practice. We also welcome attendees who have not yet done research, or who are looking for inspiration for a capstone/honours thesis– this is a great place to scout potential research questions and areas of interest.
CLAUSE will be on Friday, March 23rd. Call for submissions (15 minute oral presentations as well as poster submissions) will be open from February 5th – March 5th. For more information, or to submit your abstracts, go to our website: https://sites.google.com/view/clause2018
