What is CLS?
The Center for Language Sciences is an umbrella organization at the University of Rochester that brings together faculty, postdocs, and graduate students who conduct research on any aspect of human language as a vehicle for active interdisciplinary work. CLS fosters research and activities that reach across a very broad group of disciplines. Some of its primary disciplines are linguistics, psychology, philosophy, computer science, data science, psychology, cognitive science, music theory, neuroscience, and engineering, covering a wide research focus and range of interests. CLS is a continually evolving organization with a history of serving as a platform for training students and postdocs in interdisciplinary research and enhancing collaborations among members. Our strength is in our diversity, our breadth, and the quality of our connections, collaborations and research.
