The International Association of Chinese Linguistics (IACL) holds an Annual Conference on Chinese linguistics at various institutions in Asia, North America, Europe, and Australia since its establishment in 1992. The event serves as an important occasion for scholars and researchers working on Chinese linguistics across the globe to present original, unpublished research work in all subfields of linguistics on any variety of the Chinese languages or other languages of China.
Due to the pandemic, the 28th Annual Conference of the International Association of Chinese Linguistics (IACL-28), originally planned to be hosted by Zhejiang University in 2020 and held in Hangzhou, has not taken place as scheduled. Subsequently, the Executive Committee of IACL decided that the dates of the 28th Annual Conference of the International Association of Chinese Linguistics (IACL-28) will be moved to May 20-22, 2022, the event to be hosted by The Chinese University of Hong Kong. As the pandemic situation in Hong Kong remains severe, IACL-28 will take place in a completely online manner via Zoom.
