Cambridge Occasional Papers in Linguistics

Studying at Cambridge

Poster Event 2020

We are pleased to announce that COPiL will be hosting a poster presentation session in late January 2020.

This event will provide authors with the opportunity to interact with audiences and receive direct feedback for their ideas. The event will take place roughly two weeks before the deadline for Volume 12 submissions (14 February 2020). This is intended to give authors time to incorporate any feedback into their work should they choose to do so.

Participation is also open to other interested parties who are unable to submit a written article at this time. We will give preference to undergraduate and masters students. Please see the call for posters for more details.

This event is funded by the Linguistics Association for Great Britain.
