BLS 2020

Typically, in early February, Berkeley has hosted the annual meeting of the Berkeley Linguistic Society (BLS). This year we are continuing with a new format, where instead of a general conference we will be holding a focused two-day event on a particular theme. The theme for this year's meeting is Phonological Representations. A call for papers will be posted in mid September.
