Have you heard of LINGUIST List’s Geoling Service?

GeoLing is a map service that displays on a global map all linguistics information posted to LINGUIST List  — from jobs, to conferences, to internships. The LINGUIST List posts to the mailing list only events of global relevance, but if you want to inform the community about any local events in your area, GeoLing is the tool you want to use. When you submit events to GeoLing, they are not only displayed on the GeoLing map, but also forwarded to all LINGUIST List pages on social media. They will be also made accessible via Amazon Alexa.

 

Find events in your area using Geoling’s global map!

Any information that contains geo-coordinates or addresses – when  posted on LINGUIST List (using the structured submission interface on its website: http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.cfm) is instantly mapped on GeoLing and does not need to be separately posted on GeoLing

 

If you want to make public information about:

  • Talks and meetings at your local departments
  • Colloquium presentations
  • Workgroup meetings
  • The office address of your institution, department, program
  • Book presentations
  • Language resources, data sets, tools
  • And other information of local and regional interest

submit the announcements to GeoLing!

 

GeoLing runs on all major browsers and on mobile devices.
