The annual TABU Dag is an international linguistics conference organized at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands. Researchers, students and other interested people are warmly invited to participate! TABU Dag originated from the university's linguistic journal TABU (taalbulletin, language bulletin) and over the last 37 years has developed into a well-established conference with a varied programme and guest speakers from different fields.

The conference offers excellent opportunities to meet other linguists and discuss current research in several areas of linguistics. Graduate students and postdoctoral researchers in particular are encouraged to present their work.

The next TABU Dag will be held on Friday, June 3, 2016. You can find other important dates here.

We look forward to welcoming you to the 37th TABU Dag!
