Past & Upcoming Conferences

In the first two years, the annual event was named the Northeast Conference on Chinese Linguistics (NECCL), reflecting its regional orgin. It was renamed the North American Conference on Chinese Linguistics (NACCL) during the third conference to broaden its geographical representation, hence, from NECCL to NACCL, to include all of the U.S. as well as Canada. Another milestone took place in 1996 when the NACCL-8 conference created a website for the conference event. (For information on the early years, see History of NACCL: The First Two Decades (1988-2008).) Below, links are provided for those NACCL conferences with websites that are currently still online. NACCL conferences have been held jointly with annual conferences of the International Association of Chinese Linguistics (IACL) when the latter is held in North America. This is no longer the practice as of 2018, when IACL decided to organize IACL-26 as a separate conference in the U.S. Upcoming NACCL conferences are listed below when information is available.

If you have presented at NACCL and are interested in offering to host a future NACCL conference at your home institution in North America, the NACCL Steering Committee would love to hear from you!
