I still haven't posted the names of the plenary speakers since I'm 
trying to get the funding for the third speaker (Bernard Comrie and 
Robert D. Van Valin Jr. have already agreed to come). I'll know about

have just two plenary speakers.

Please send us your abstract soon. We may extend the deadline for a few 
days, there is plenty of time for the evaluation (the registration will 
begin on May 1).
