The Buckeye East Asian Linguistics Forum 2 (BEAL Forum) provides a platform primarily for graduate students to articulate and exchange ideas on their research findings with forum participants. It is a one-day event with keynote lectures and poster sessions. The forum is an excellent opportunity to present one's research in a public arena and to receive comments individually. With the exception of keynote lectures, all are poster presentations, thus giving participants ample time for discussion. The event is intended to showcase regional research activities in East Asian linguistics. The event is free and open to the public.

There will be two keynote speakers for this year's Forum:

- Professor Yoshihisa Kitagawa (Indiana University, Bloomington)
- Professor Xiaofei Lu (Pennsylvania State University)
