Tu+ is an annual conference about all aspects of linguistic research on Turkic languages and languages used in geographical regions where Turkic languages are spoken, with a focus on, but not limited to, underrepresented languages that may not have a venue of their own. The impulse behind Tu+ is to create a collaborative environment to socialize and share ideas, little or big.
