The ULAB 2024 Conference is officially open for abstract submissions! Submit here by 14 February to present at the conference in Sussex!

Welcome to the homepage for the 2024 ULAB conference, to be held at the University of Sussex. Tickets on sale now here.

The Undergraduate Linguistics Association of Britain (ULAB) was founded in 2011. Since then, ULAB has hosted an annual conference which aims to give undergraduate students, and recent graduates, a chance to network with each other and showcase their research. The ULAB 2024 conference will be hosted by the University of Sussex, with participation both in-person and online being an option for attendees. The conference is being organised by a group of undergraduate students at the University of Sussex. Every year, a prize sponsored by the Linguistics Association of Great Britain (LAGB) is awarded to the best presentation, as voted on by the conference attendees. The prize consists of free LAGB membership for a year and the opportunity to attend and present the research at the following LAGB Annual Meeting with full funding, as well as the option to receive coaching and advice in presenting at academic conferences with a member of the LAGB committee.

Submission guidelines

Please submit an abstract of no more than 500 words. If you have not written an abstract before, you can find a helpful guide to writing an abstract on our website here:

All submissions must fall within the field of linguistics. As this is an undergraduate conference, the bulk of the work for all submissions must have been carried out whilst the author was an undergraduate student of linguistics or a related discipline, and so long as their undergraduate studies were completed no more than three years prior to submitting the abstract.

We accept abstracts from students all over the world! You don't have to be studying at a British University to apply, and we gladly welcome abstracts from further afield. All abstract submissions must be in English.This year we aim to have three presentation formats: long talks (roughly 20-25 minutes), short talks (roughly 5-10 minutes), and poster presentations. You will be asked to indicate which format you would prefer.
