The 40th Incontro di Grammatica Generativa will be held on February 13-15, 2013 at the Università di Trento, Department of Literature and Philosophy, Trento, Italy.

The 'Incontro di Grammatica Generativa' (Generative Grammar Meeting) is the main venue in Italy for discussions on all aspects of formal linguistics and generative grammar, including their links with psycholinguistic and computational linguistic modeling.

The conference will have oral presentations and a poster session. The official languages of the conference will be Italian and English.

Invited Speakers:

Martin Krämer, University of Tromsø
Cecilia Poletto - University of Frankfurt
Antonella Sorace - University of Edinburgh

2nd Call for Papers

Abstracts are welcome on any topic in generative grammar, but we particularly encourage submissions focusing on the following areas:

- Multilingualism in a broader perspective: developmental issues, acquisition of L2, bilingualism in language variation and change, contact phenomena, theoretical approaches to lesser studied  languages and dialects
- Theoretical, computational and cognitively plausible models of the interface between the lexicon, syntax and semantics

The conference will be preceded by the workshop 'Specificity in the Grammar: Form and Interpretation' (February 12, http://clic.cimec.unitn.it/specificity), with an independent submission process.


Authors are asked to submit their abstracts as a PDF file to the following address: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=igg40.

Submissions should be anonymous and not reveal the identity of the author(s) in any form (e.g., references, file name of the abstract). The abstract should include the title and three keywords/phrases that best describe its content. Abstracts should not exceed two pages in length (including examples and references), in 12-point type, Times font, single line spacing, 2.5 cm margins.

Please, indicate whether your abstract should be considered for poster only, for presentation only, or for both, by clicking the appropriate button on the submission page.

Submissions are limited to a maximum of one individual and one joint abstract per author, or two joint abstracts per author.

Talks will be 30 minutes + 10 minutes for discussion. 

Deadline for abstract submission: December 15, 2013 

Notification of acceptance: No later than January 18, 2014
