The aim of the EACL (European Association of Chinese Linguistics) Spring Schools in Chinese Linguistics is to provide an opportunity for MA and PhD-students affiliated to European universities to be exposed to areas in Chinese linguistics to which they are not exposed in their home institution; and to make them aware of the expertise in Chinese linguistics present in Europe. So far we have held six Spring schools in Leiden (2006), München (2007), Amsterdam (2008), Moscow (2009), Bochum (2010), Paris (2011), Berlin (2012), and Prague (2013). Next Spring School will be held in Rome.

The following seminars are going to be offered:
- Federico Masini and Chiara Romagnoli: Chinese lexicon and lexicography. Diachronic perspective and synchronic description.
- Daniel Kadar: Talking ABOUT Chinese language. An introduction into Chinese meta-pragmatics.
- Victor Pan & Linda Badan: Syntax of Modern Chinese. A generative introduction to topic, focus and wh-questions.
In addition to these seminars, two lectures on general linguistics will be given by Raffaele Simone (lexicon) and Mara Frascarelli (syntax).

All participants are required to participate in all the three seminar series and lectures.
