Meeting Description: 

The purpose of this event is to discuss the properties of the language faculty from a biolinguistic perspective; bringing together biologists, neuroscientists, and linguists, for three days of conference. The conference aims at exploring further the three factors that according to Chomsky (2005) enter into the growth of language in the individual: the genetic endowment, experience, and language (or organism) independent principles of efficient computation and the like. 

See the conference site for an extended version of the program.
