The annual TABU Dag is an international linguistics conference organized at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands. TABU Dag originated from the University's linguistic journal TABU (taalbulletin, language bulletin) and over the last 38 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. In particular graduate students and postdoctoral researchers are encouraged to present their work.

The next TABU Dag will be held on June 14th & 15th in 2018.
