Meeting Description:

Bidirectional Optimality Theory - Foundations and Applications. 

Bidirectional Optimality Theory
May 4th-5th, 2007, 
Centre for General Linguistics, Typology and Universals Research (ZAS),
Berlin, Germany

This conference will be held as the second part of the double conference on:

Contrast and Bidirectional Optimality Theory
May 3rd-5th, 2007, 
Centre for General Linguistics, Typology and Universals Research (ZAS),
Berlin, Germany

Bidirectional Optimality Theory (Bi-OT) emerged at the turn of the millennium as a fusion of Radical Pragmatics and Optimality Theoretic Semantics. It stirred a wealth of new research in the pragmatics-semantics interface and heavily influenced e.g. the development of evolutionary and game theoretic approaches. This conference is dedicated to discussions of foundational issues, presentations of new linguistic applications, and comparisons with other frameworks. We invite Bi-OT related original research contributions which could address a wide variety of themes including, but not restricted to, the following topics:
 
- contrast and other discourse relations
- argument structure
- conversational implicatures
- underspecification and semantic meaning
- language acquisition
- language evolution and history
- language typology
- embodiment of language
- computational models
- etc.

The organisers are planning to publish a selection of the results of the conference either as a special issue of a journal or as a book. 

Invited Speakers:
Maria Aloni, Amsterdam
Reinhard Blutner, Amsterdam
Helen de Hoop, Nijmegen
Henk Zeevat, Amsterdam

Submissions:
Authors should submit an anonymous abstract. The length of abstracts for talks should be at most 2 single-column pages including literature. All submissions should include a separate cover page specifying the authors' names, affiliation, address, e-mail address and title of the paper. The abstracts should be submitted electronically (pdf, ps or doc format) to: biot07 at zas.gwz-berlin.de

Important Dates:
Deadline for Submissions: March 5th, 2007
Notification of Acceptance: March 23rd, 2007
Conference: May 4th-5th, 2007,
