The first Experiments in Linguistic Meaning (ELM) conference will be hosted virtually by the University of Pennsylvania, September 16-18, 2020. The schedule is now online. The conference is dedicated to the experimental study of linguistic meaning broadly construed, with a focus on theoretical issues in semantics and pragmatics, their interplay with other components of the grammar, their relation to language processing and acquisition, as well as their connections to human cognition and computation. It aims to include representation of linguistic, psychological, logical, philosophical, social, developmental, computational, as well as cross-linguistic and cross-cultural perspectives.
 
The conference will also feature Pop-Up Mentoring under the auspices of the Pop-Up Mentoring Program (PUMP) organized by the LSA's Committee on the Status of Women in Linguistics (COSWL).  Interested participants should sign up by September 8. 
 
Registration is free but required.  Please register here.
