We are pleased to announce the *Third International Postgraduate Conference on Language and Cognition (ELC3),* to be held at the University of Santiago de Compostela (Spain) on *21-22 September 2012.*

ELC3 aims to provide postgraduate students with an opportunity to present and discuss their research in an informal and intellectually stimulating setting. We welcome proposals for papers characterized by an empirical, cognitive-functional outlook on the study of language and communication; they may cover fields as diverse as grammar and morphosyntax, language change and historical linguistics, sociolinguistics, psycholinguistics, speech and language disorders, discourse analysis and pragmatics, lexicology and semantics, contrastive and corpus linguistics, and linguistics applied to the teaching and acquisition of first and second languages.

The conference is organised by postgraduate students from the English Departments at the Universities of Santiago de Compostela and Vigo and the Department of Social and Experimental Psychology at Santiago de Compostela. It is supported by the *English Linguistics Circle* <http://elc.org.es/>, a research network involving the following research teams:

*Variation, Linguistic Change and Grammaticalization<http://www.usc-vlcg.es/> * (VLCG; University of Santiago de Compostela). Director: Teresa Fanego.
