LingO 2023 is a single-day linguistics conference that aims to bring together all strands of linguistic study to explore the diversity of linguistic research.

Under the general thematic title of 'Exploring the Diversity of Linguistic Research', this year’s iteration of LingO welcomes work (by postgraduates and early-career researchers) from all areas of linguistics, whether dealing with one specific area, merging two subfields (e.g., 'morphosyntax', 'computational phonology'), or even branching out into other areas (e.g., 'anthropological linguistics'). Creativity is welcomed!

The event will include a panel discussion, oral and poster presentations by graduate students and early career researchers, lightning talks, and opportunities for networking and socialising.

LingO 2023 is geared towards graduate students and early career researchers, though all are welcome to attend.

Abstract Submission

To apply, please submit an electronic abstract of 500 words by 15 May 2023 at tinyurl.com/LingO2023, indicating your preference of oral presentation, poster session, or lightning talk. Abstracts not accepted for oral presentation will automatically be considered for poster presentation or lightning talk.


There is a registration fee of £17 that covers lunch and coffee breaks.

Please register for the conference using this link. All presenters must register. Notifications of acceptance have now been sent out.
