The Vice-Chancellor, Sir Alan Langlands, will formally open the proceedings at 16.00.

This showcase will promote the Research Satellite approach to interdisciplinary exchanges, and reflect the breadth of language-related research in a poster session at which scholars from across the University are invited to present their work.

This is a unique opportunity to promote language-related research, take stock of its interdisciplinary breadth, and identify opportunities. The Vice Chancellor is doing us the honour of opening the showcase.
