What is ConSOLE?

ConSOLE is an annual traveling conference for graduate and advanced undergraduate students in Linguistics from around the world. SOLE, founded in 1992 by students of the Holland Institute of Generative Linguistics, is currently based at Leiden University Centre for Linguistics. Together with a local organizing committee, it runs an annual conference for linguistic students, providing a forum for the upcoming generation of linguists to present research to an international audience.
