Due to the high demand, all the spots for the online attandance has been filled. We still have some limited in-person availability. Registration deadline is Aug 10!

Expression, Language, and Music (ELM) is to be a biennial conference that brings together researchers from linguistics, music theory, anthropology, neurobiology, cognitive science, philosophy, and more, with the aim of integrating recent findings and insights from diverse perspectives concerning, e.g. the significance of emotional expression for both music and language, the importance of systematic structure in both music and language, and the interrelations between expressive, musical, and communicative capacities and their relevance for understanding the emergence of language (in ontogeny and phylogeny). Future conferences may focus more narrowly on a subset of these topics.

Although we would like to see you all in-person at our conference, due to the current conditions, our seating capacity is limited. We plan to broadcast the talks via Zoom. While registering, please choose the 'Broadcasting' option.
