This is Kenneth again. One of our most popular posting areas is Conferences and Calls for Papers. I am the main editor who posts in this area. We receive submissions from conferences all over the world (just look at geoling.linguistlist.org to see for yourself). Each submission we get is edited and verified by one of our editors and then sent out over the listserv so that people like you can know about the conferences coming up in your subdiscipline. This area of the listserv is also very beneficial as a way for newer, more specialized conferences to get their information out there.
Here’s a heatmap of the number of submissions we receive for conferences each day!
Some of these are quickly filtered out as not linguistically relevant but most require time to edit everything. If you appreciate what we do, please donate at the Fund drive page . Thank you!
