The Poznań Linguistic Meeting (PLM) is an annual general linguistics conference that continues the tradition of the Polish–English contrastive conferences started by Jacek Fisiak in 1970. The name "Poznań Linguistic Meeting" was adopted in 1997, when Katarzyna Dziubalska-Kołaczyk took over as the Head of the Organising Committee. The Meetings are organised by the School of English, Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznań. Materials from past PLMs are archived here.

Current edition: PLM2011

The 42nd Poznań Linguistic Meeting (PLM2011) was held on 1–3 May 2011 in Poznań. The leitmotif was Language, discourse and society: Collective and individual aspects of social dynamics.
