Welcome to the 1st LingDA Student Conference

The MA Programme Linguistic Diversity in the Digital Age (LingDA) is organizing a one-day conference on May 17, 2018 in Metsätalo.

The LingDA Student Conference is an event where students from the University of Helsinki, within linguistics and linguistics-related studies gather to present research, to network and socialize.
The LingDA Student Conference aims to bring together students from LingDA and other linguistics-related programmes and to provide an opportunity to showcase and discuss finished or ongoing MA thesis work, or to share research ideas, plans or proposals, which could benefit from the feedback of participants.

All LingDA students and students of LingDA-related subjects in the old system: especially, but not exclusively, General Linguistics, Language Technology, Phonetics, Finnish and Finno-Ugrian Languages, African and Asian Languages, as well as teachers and researchers affiliated with LingDA, are warmly invited to join the 1st LingDA Student Conference. The registration deadline for the conference is April 30, 2018.

The call for abstracts is now open. Students are invited to submit their abstracts no later than April 23, 2018.

The conference will end with a social event where wine & cheese will be served.

We invite two types of MA thesis presentations:
Regular Presentation of finished or ongoing MA thesis work. These should be brief presentations of no more than 20 minutes (plus 10 minutes for discussion).
Lightning Talk of MA thesis plans or proposals. These should be highly focused presentations of no more than 6 minutes (plus 3 minutes for discussion).
