The 15th Annual Meeting of the Illinois Language and Linguistics Society (ILLS) will be held from March 3-4, 2023 at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. ILLS is an annual graduate student-run conference aimed primarily at providing graduate and advanced undergraduate students a friendly venue in which to present and discuss research on any topic related to language and linguistics.

ILLS is a general linguistics conference open to any and all submissions relating to language and linguistics. The conference theme for ILLS15 is “Interdisciplinary Approaches to Bilingualism." We primarily encourage submissions from graduate and undergraduate students. We hold that an interdisciplinary exchange of ideas and a collaborative approach to language from a multitude of avenues is fundamental to the advancement of language research and the subsequent understanding of our world, cultures, and societies. Our currently confirmed plenary speakers this year include:

Lydia White (McGill University)
Barbara Bullock (The University of Texas at Austin)
Johanne Paradis (University of Alberta)
Viorica Marian (Northwestern University)
