Meeting Description:

The q Undergraduate Association for Linguistics at Michigan State University
(qUALMS) is pleased to announce the seventh annual Great Lakes Expo for
Experimental and Formal Undergraduate Linguistics (GLEEFUL). GLEEFUL aims to
bring together undergraduate linguists from across the continent to present
high quality, original research to their peers in order to gain experience and
a greater appreciation for the many ways to study linguistics and
language-related fields.

GLEEFUL was first held in 2011 and is in its 7th consecutive year. GLEEFUL has
historically been held on the same weekend as MSULC, making it possible for
visitors to attend both conferences. Each conference features a keynote
speaker who is a current researcher in linguistics.

Additionally, qUALMS is pleased to announce our continuation of our workshop
series for GLEEFUL. These workshops are aimed at undergraduates looking to
improve their skill set by exposing them to current techniques and ways to
approach linguistic problems.

GLEEFUL 2017 will be held on April 22-23, 2017 in East Lansing, Michigan. For
abstracts we are looking for high quality, original, undergraduate research in
the broad field of linguistics and language sciences.

Keynote Speaker:

Professor Andrew Nevins
University College of London

Two Workshops:

Machine Learning in Linguistic and Phonetic Research
Will Styler
University of Michigan

Field work: Benefits and challenges
Marlyse Baptista
University of Michigan

More information is available on the conference website at:

Call for Papers:

We invite 1 page abstracts (500 words) for 10-15 minute presentations or

Abstract submission and registration will all be done electronically through
our website and email.

Deadline for submission of abstract: Friday January 20, 2017

Abstracts will be reviewed, and participants will be notified around
