CoLang Announcements

After careful consideration, we have arrived at the difficult decision to cancel CoLang 2020. Due to the rapidly changing situation with COVID-19 in the United States and around the world, we believe that the risk is too great to continue with the Institute as planned. We want to sincerely thank all of you who have worked with us on building CoLang 2020, and hope to be able to continue to collaborate in the future. Updated 3/18/20.

We are excited to announce that the University of Montana and Chief Dull Knife College have been selected to host CoLang 2022. Stay tuned for more information! Updated 7/22/20.
