The 33rd Meeting of the North American Conference on Chinese Linguistics

The 33rd meeting of the North American Conference on Chinese Linguistics (NACCL-33) 第33屆北美漢語語言學會議 will be held virtually on June 24-25, 2021.

The theme of the conference this year is “Variation and Change in Chinese Varieties around the Globe.” It is well known that China features a wealth of linguistic diversity. One of the main reasons for this level of variation is population movement, which is precipitated by natural disasters, imperial expansion, and general economic opportunities. Population movement is not restricted to be within China, however. The number and geographic distribution of Chinese-speaking diasporic communities are immense and their contact with local languages have resulted in unique developments that have, until recently, received relatively little attention. NACCL is an ideal venue to bring together scholars from around the world who are conducting research on Chinese varieties, to integrate multidisciplinary perspectives into Chinese linguistic research with diaspora communities and to discuss diaspora Chinese linguistics in its own right.

The conference will be hosted on Whova, an events management platform that offers both mobile app and web versions. Online registration for NACCL 33 is now available, and is free for all.

NACCL 33 is co-sponsored by the Center for East Asian Studies at the University of Chicago with generous support from a Title VI National Resource Center Grant from the U.S. Department of Education.

Starts: June 24, 2021
Ends: June 25, 2021
Time: 7:50 AM - 7:00 PM

Immunoengineering 2021

A virtual conference hosted by the PME's Chicago Immunoengineering Innovation Center in partnership with the Polsky Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation. Featuring a star-studded panel of speakers invited from across the world, we will discuss some of the latest developments in the field, including some established industry players and a spotlight on some young ventures working in the area.

Engineering approaches are unraveling the complexity of the immune system and delivering clinical solutions. The study of immunology has revealed how single cells, and even single antigen receptors, can stimulate a large cascade of responses. As the amount of data generated has rapidly increased, engineering approaches are creating new ways to sift through the noise and deliver deeper insights, as well as leveraging the insight to create new molecules, materials, and therapeutics with promising implications for human health. Learn about how a marriage of bioengineering and immunology are revolutionizing immunobiology, therapy, and diagnostics across these themes:

- Systems and computational immunology

- Microbiome engineering

- Protein engineering for immunotherapy

- Vaccine and adjuvant engineering

Date: June 24, 2021
Time: 8:00 AM - 6:00 PM
