Meeting Description:

The purpose of this conference is to discuss the properties of grammar and
variation from a biolinguistic perspective, bringing together biologists,
neuroscientists, and linguists, for three days of conference. The
conference aims at exploring further the factors that according to Chomsky
(2006) contribute to the growth of language in the individual, the genetic
endowment, experience, and language independent principles of efficient
computation, focusing on the factors contributing to language evolution and
variation.

Call for Papers
In addition to the invited talks, a small number of papers will be accepted
for presentation at the conference. We invite submissions for thirty-minute
talks (20 minutes for presentation plus 10 minutes for questions) on
research focusing on the biolinguistic approach to language evolution and
variation. A representative, but not exhaustive, list of topics for
potential papers include the following:   
   
-The architectural constraints that determine and limit possible attainable
languages
-Language dependent and independent principles determining language growth 
-The properties of pronunciation and interpretation of copies and the
relation of the internal language to the interfaces.
