Welcome to the homepage of the Illinois Language and Linguistic Society.
The ILLS annual conference is proud to be entirely student-organized and operated by the Linguistics Student Organization at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. ILLS is a general linguistics conference, primarily encouraging the submission of abstracts by graduate students. In the past we have held special sessions on a variety of themes including Minority Languages, Pragmatics, and Multilingualism.
Since 2009 this conference has grown to include student presenters from across the country; and in 2013, we reached a milestone of one hundred registered attendees.
09/26/13 - The committee has decided that 'Language and Technology' will be the special session at the ILLS6 conference.
