Event description: 

The Southern New England Workshop in Semantics (SNEWS) is an annual graduate student conference that brings together presenters from six universities: Harvard, MIT, Brown, Yale, University of Massachusetts at Amherst and University of Connecticut.

In the past, there have usually been 2–3 presenters from each school. SNEWS is a great chance for graduate students to present their work and receive feedback in an informal setting. Students at any point of their graduate career are most welcome to participate.

Topics of presentation generally fall into any of the following categories (broadly defined): semantics, pragmatics, semantics/pragmatics interface, experimental and psycholinguistic investigations into semantic/pragmatic phenomena, etc.

More than that – SNEWS is also a fun and informal way to get to know your peers from other institutions. Both friendships and collaborations have been fostered this way in the past.
