Regular meetings and talks

Linguistics Colloquium

The linguistics graduate students organize a colloquium series every fall and spring semester. They bring linguists in from all over the world to present their most current work. Often, the Maryland Colloquium Series is the first public presentation of ground-breaking research. The colloquium takes place Fridays at 3:00, about five times per semester. To receive announcements of the linguistics colloquia, please subscribe to the linguistics colloquium listserv. A catalog of our colloquium talks, including upcoming talks, is here.
2016-2017 Committee: Kasia Hitczenko, Chris Neufeld, Maxime Papillon and Laurel Perkins.

Cognitive Science Colloquium

The Cognitive Science Colloquium series is designed to provide a focus for all those on campus who have interests in the cognitive sciences by bringing leaders in the field to present their work. There are approximately eight talks per semester, Thursdays at 3:30.
Organizing Committee: Peter Carruthers (Philosophy), Jeff Lidz and Naomi Feldman (Linguistics), Jonathan Beier and Robert Slevc (Psychology).

Computational Linguistics and Information Processing (CLIP) Colloquium

The CLIP laboratory at Maryland is engaged in designing algorithms and building systems which allow computers to effectively and efficiently perform human language-related tasks.
Contact person: Jimmy Lin (UMIACS)

Language Science Lunch Talks

On most weeks members of the Maryland language science community meet for Language Science lunch talks. These provide an opportunity for students and faculty to present ongoing work related to the Laguage Science program's goals of investigating the biological and computational foundations for language diversity.

CNL lab meetings

Graduate students and faculty meet weekly, Fridays at noon, to present work-in-progress on language processing (acquisition, psycholinguistics, and neurolinguistics).
Contact person: Colin Phillips

Syntax/Semantics (S-LAB) lab meetings

Graduate students and faculty meet twice a month, to present work-in-progress on syntactic and semantic phenomena. For Fall 2015, S-LAB meets alternately on Tuesdays 12:15-2:00.
Contact person: Howard Lasnik

Computational psycholinguistics lab meetings

Graduate students and faculty meet biweekly, Fridays at 9am in Room 1108B of Marie Mount Hall, to present work-in-progress or read recent articles related to computational models of how people learn and process language. You can go here to add yourself to the mailing list.
Contact person: Naomi Feldman


PHLING is a reading and research group comprising students from both Philosophy and Linguistics. PHLING meets on alternate weeks to discuss issues at the intersection of the two fields, for example in semantics, cognitive science, metaphysics, or mathematical modeling. In Spring 2015, meetings are every other Thursday, 5:00-7:00, in Marie Mount Hall Room 1108B.
Contact person: Rachel Dudley

Acquisition Lab

Acquisition of syntax and semantics (and occasionally phonology) lab meetings each week to discuss ongoing research in the lab, dealing with issues all levels of the research process. The lab meeting is Fridays from 9:30 to 11:00 in Marie Mount Hall 1108B and doubles as an activity for undergraduate students in Ling248/448, an undergraduate lab research course for students working in language acquisition.
Contact Person: Jeffrey Lidz

LingBrains meetings

Graduate students and faculty meet weekly to present work-in-progress on research using cognitive neuroscience methods.
