Conferences affected by Covid-19

Many conferences and workshops have been affected by the Covid-19 situation. I have updated the information announced so far and will try to keep the info up to date as the situation develops.

I can only keep up with the updates for conferences already included on Lingalert, otherwise it would become too time consuming. Apologies in advance.

You can check the updated info of the affected conferences under the tag “Covid-19“. 

I’d appreciate it if organisers (of the conferences/workshops already included on Lingalert) get in touch with their latest updates at

Stay safe and strong.
