We are pleased to announce this year's Central European Summer School in
Generative Grammar, to be held in:

Brno, Czech Republic

from July 30th - August 10th

Registration is taking place from May 3rd until May 16th at

http://egg.auf.net

where more detailed information is available.

The egg focuses on generative grammar. Teachers are both senior established
figures in the field and young promising researchers at the forefront of
today's research (they are all coming to teach for free (and for fun)). 

The school is free (there is no tuition fee), and dorm beds will be less
than 5 Euros per night. Students from former communist countries in Central
and Eastern Europe can apply for financial support (covering travel, visa
and/or accommodation expenses).

There will be two types of classes: introductory classes and research
classes. The list of courses and teachers is appended below.
