About

VALING is a research conference dedicated to promoting the study of linguistics by undergraduates in Virginia and the Mid-Atlantic area. Research in any linguistic discipline is welcome, including phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics, field work, sociolinguistics, psycholinguistics, language acquisition, etc. We hope to have a wide range of topics and voices represented.

The conference will be hosted virtually by William & Mary. The format will involve a series of full 20-min talks and 5-min "micro talks" (poster equivalent) organized by topic, and a keynote talk by the invited speaker. 

Registration is FREE for all participants! (including presenters and attendees).
