​Students enjoy the collegial atmosphere provided by MACSIM 5.

On October 3, the Department of Linguistics and Cognitive Science and the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences hosted the 5th annual Mid-Atlantic Colloquium of Studies in Meaning (MACSIM V). The conference features presentations by graduate students in linguistics and related fields from the programs in the Mid-Atlantic region. This year, we had seven oral presentations and twenty poster presentations from the eight participating universities: New York University, the City University of New York, Rutgers University, the University of Pennsylvania, Johns Hopkins University, the University of Maryland - College Park, Georgetown University, and the University of Delaware. The day began with the plenary talk by Florian Schwarz, Assistant Professor of Linguistics at the University of Pennsylvania and the founder of the conference. His presentation, 'Towards a typology of presupposition triggers: Experimental explorations', and the six oral presentations that followed it generated lively discussions in which many of the students in our program participated. The two poster sessions in the middle of the day were equally rigorous, and all the presenters were busy explaining their ideas and answering questions from the audience. The exciting day was concluded with the reception at SpeakEasy where the participants had a chance to wind down and socialize.

Funding for the conference was provided by the two hosting departments, and with generous support from School of Graduate and Professional Services, we were able to use a conference room and the rotunda of Gore Hall for the conference and SpeakEasy for the reception.
