The Corona Situation: Due to the new situation in Norway and the world we are at the moment discussing what to do and what alternatives there are for our conference. We'll decide this just over Easter. At the moment we ask speakers and participants to plan according to the present schedule. (Oslo, 21. March 2020).  

The NGL conference series (previously also known as ICNGL) provides an open forum for linguistic research in order to facilitate the exchange of ideas on Nordic (including Germanic, Finnic, Saamic and Greenlandic) and other languages, including multilingualism. Its main goals are to create and strengthen connections between researchers working on different languages, with different methodological and theoretical approaches.
