    The Society of Linguistics Undergraduate Students (SLUgS) at the University of California, Berkeley, is now accepting abstracts for its Fifth Annual Berkeley Undergraduate Linguistics Symposium, to be held on the weekend of April 3, 2021. We are seeking linguistics undergraduate students interested in presenting work from research that they have either assisted with or worked on individually. The research project need not be complete; we accept works-in-progress as long as there is sufficient material to fill a twenty-minute speaking slot. If presenting on your work as a research assistant, please have the principal investigator send us an email to confirm that you have permission to present their research.

    Due to COVID-19, the symposium will be held virtually and speakers will not be expected to travel or attend in person events.

    Submissions and questions:

    Abstract: PDF format, one page (not including citations), minimum 0.5in margins and minimum 10pt font size

    Deadline: Friday, December 4th, 2020 at 11:59pm PST

    Acceptances will be sent out by December 11th, and we will send more logistical information to speakers and attendees as the date approaches. Thank you!
