Sociolinguistics Symposium 24

Ghent
13 to 16 July 2022
  • 2017

Sociolinguistics Symposium is the world’s main gathering of sociolinguists internationally. This two-yearly event provides a unique opportunity and forum to develop and exchange ideas and research findings about language and society in its manifold connections and manifestations. From its beginnings as a small meeting in the UK in 1976, the tradition of Sociolinguistic Symposia has grown into the largest sociolinguistic networking event in the world. Attracting hundreds of participants and exhibitors, the Symposium is also a stimulating space for networking.

It is with much enthusiasm that we announce Sociolinguistics Symposium 24. SS24 will be held in Ghent in July 2022. In close consultation with previous symposium organizers and our colleagues in Hong Kong, the tradition of a meeting in even years is upheld. SS24 in 2022 will mark the 20th anniversary of the first Sociolinguistics Symposium hosted on the European mainland (SS14 in Ghent in 2002). SS24 is organized by Ghent University in close collaboration with the Belgian sociolinguistic community. The dates of the conference are 13-16 July 2022.

SpineWeek 2023

Melbourne, Australia
1 to 5 May 2023
  • 2022

Dear Colleagues,

The idea to have a joint meeting bringing together several spine societies at the same time and at the same place originated around the turn of the century.
The SpineWeek committee was mandated with the practical organisation of such a conference, and this led to the first SpineWeek meeting which was held in Porto, Portugal in 2004. It was well received by individual participants, the involved scientific spine societies and by the supporting MedTech industry.

Three more SpineWeeks followed: Geneva (Switzerland) in 2008, Amsterdam (The Netherlands) in 2012 and Singapore in 2016.

One of the remarkable evolutions noted from one SpineWeek to the next, was the increase of participants coming from Asia Pacific. This incited the SpineWeek committee to move east for the 2020 SpineWeek meeting. Unfortunaly we were unable to organize SpineWeek 2020 due to the Corona virus but we are very pleased to announce that SpineWeek 2020 has been moved to 1-5 May, 2023 in Melbourne.

Next to the usual participating spine societies such as the North American Spine Society (NASS) and the Brasilian Spine Society, we now welcome other societies. SpineWeek meetings have been at the origin of many a scientific collaboration bringing together clinicians and scientists from around the world and from very different scientific societies.

We look forward to a truly exciting week in Melbourne, both at a scientific and a social level.

Join us for this first Oceanian SpineWeek meeting and spread the word!
