The lineup for the Second Language Creation Conference has been set!
This year's lineup has a fantastic series of hour-length
talks--including one by David Salo, the linguist who worked out the
Tolkienian dialog in the Lord of the Rings movies--and a new series of
short, conlang-specific talks that allows conlangers to talk about
their own languages, and the engineering and artistry that went into
creating them.  Additionally, there will be several panel discussions,
and a live unveiling of the conlang relay done by conference attendees
the month prior.

If you haven't yet registered for LCC2, register now, using the link below:


We're looking forward to seeing everyone there.  Come meet your peers,
your friends, and your fellow conlangers for food, fun, and games!

The current schedule is posted below.  If you have any questions,
