UCL Laboratory for Language and Speech Diversions

Scheduled Meetings

Here is a list of past and upcoming LLSD lab meetings. Please feel free to come along to any of the meetings if you are interested. If you would like like to present your work at a meeting please get in touch (you don't need to be a member of the lab group to attend or present). We try to keep meetings very informal in nature, which we believe helps to generate stimulating discussion and feedback. Lab meetings usually last no longer than one hour.

The first meeting of each new term is usually taken up by an open round in which we all briefly introduce ourselves and tell each other about our progress and research plans for the next term. This is a perfect opportunity to get involved with the lab—but you can of course join the lab group any time during the year.
