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. 

Invited Speaker

Cynthia Lukyanenko (George Mason University)

Information for Presenters

Full talks are provided 20 minutes for the presentation plus 10 minutes for questions. Micro talks are provided 5 minutes for the presentation plus 5 minutes for questions. 

Before your session, double check that you have your presentation/slide file open and ready to share on Zoom. When it is your time to present, the session chair will introduce your talk and ask you to share your screen. We suggest sharing just the application window, full screen for your presentation. If you are sharing audio or video with sound, make sure to click the check box ‘Share computer sound’ at the bottom left on the pop up window where you select what to share. Make sure to unmute yourself before speaking.

For full talks, the session chair will give you a 5-minute, 2-minute, and 0-minute remaining time alert by holding up a sign to their camera. For micro-talks, the session chair will give a 2-minute and 0-minute alert in the same manner. We recommend pinning the session chair's video so that you can see the alerts. For the Q&A period, the session chair will handle calling on attendees, and reading questions from the chat.
