The 4th Norwegian Graduate Student Conference in Linguistics and Philology (NoSLIP 2020) is organized by students for students under the aegis of the Norwegian Graduate Researcher School in Linguistics and Philology (LingPhil). This year, NoSLIP will take place at the University of Bergen from March 12-13, 2020. The conference is open to Ph.D. and master's degree students (current) and serves as an important venue for graduate and post-graduate students to present the latest research on linguistics and philology while also providing them with an opportunity to interact, collaborate, and meet with up-and-coming and established researchers from the field.
