The West Coast Conference on Formal Linguistics (WCCFL, pronounced /ˈwɪkfəl/) is an annual linguistics conference, held in the spring at a university in western North America. It is a top international venue for researchers in theoretical linguistics, studying any aspect of human language from a formal perspective, including phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, and their interfaces. The first WCCFL was held in 1982, and it has previously been hosted by UC Santa Cruz four times, most recently in 2012. The 41st West Coast Conference on Formal Linguistics (WCCFL 41) will take place on May 5-7, 2023 at the University of California, Santa Cruz.

Invited speakers:
Luke Adamson, Rutgers University
Dorothy Ahn, Rutgers University
Eva Zimmerman, University of Leipzig

At this time, all talks in both main and special sessions are planned for in person presentation. In addition to one in-person person session, there will be one virtual poster session.
