Poster Event 2020

The first COPiL poster event will be held on Friday, 7th February 2020.

Venue: Barbara White Room, Newnham College
Time: 16:00 - 18:00

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

A full list of participants and poster abstracts can be found here.

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