ILLS5 Conference Feedback

"Attending ILLS was a great experience. Although the focus was minority languages, you could find great quality presentations on different topics; my favorite ones were on contact linguistics. Also, it was a very friendly environment...Invited speakers were also very approachable and participated in the social events."
