Upcoming Events

The 17th IGEL Conference in Liverpool, UK, July 1-4, 2020,

has been postponed!

In light of the current global health situation, the 17th IGEL conference has been postponed. We are delighted to let you know that the 17th IGEL conference will now take place 23-26 June 2021 at the University of Liverpool (including the same keynote speakers).

  • We kindly request that delegates whose proposals were accepted in March 2020 hold these dates. Further details will be available in Autumn 2020, when conference registration will open.
  • We encourage those who wish to propose presentations for 2021 that were not among those accepted in March 2020 to watch for a new call for presentation proposals in Autumn 2020.
  • The pre-conference training school (on sentiment analysis) will be held on 21-22 June 2021, also at the University of Liverpool. Again, we ask colleagues who signed up for the training school this year to hold these dates, and await further information in Autumn 2020.

The conference committee would like to thank everyone for their interest and contributions to date. This promises to be an exciting conference when it happens!

As these plans become available, they will be presented on the IGEL conference pages on the Liverpool University Department of English website.
