Sociolinguistics Events Calendar
Welcome to the Sociolinguistic Events Calendar, which is designed to list all sociolinguistic events around the world, including conferences, public lectures, training events, PhD summer schools, etc.
If you have a Google account, then you can easily integrate it with your own calendar by clicking the little “+ Google Calendar” icon in the bottom right of the calendar.
You can also sync Google Calendar with Outlook calendar, and with other online calendars that use the iCalendar format (e.g. Apple Calendars) by copying and pasting the following iCalendar URL:

If you’re organising or attending a sociolinguistic event, then you may wish to read these reports, completed by sociolinguists around the world:
- Survey on Remote Attendance at Sociolinguistic Events
- General Conference Preferences Survey
- Survey on Electronic Gizmos and Doowackeys
- Survey on Childcare at Conferences
Each survey had over 100 responses and showed some clear trends in what people want from conferences and other sociolinguistic events.
BAAL is a professional association, based in the UK, which provides a forum for people interested in language and applied linguistics. We have an international professional membership of around 1000 members.
