Every two years or so, the Language Creation Society holds a Language Creation Conference. The conference is a set of talks and panel discussions about various issues related to language creation from several different perspectives. It includes both fairly technical linguistic discussions as well as more general, sociological, or philosophical discussions and examples of craft in action. Presenters include people from many parts of the conlanging community and from all over the world. The conference is open to everyone.
