Dear all,
now that the covid-related travel restrictions within Europe are gradually being lifted, we would like to remind you of the Summer School on "Semantic Shifts: From lexicon to grammar. Diachronic and typological perspectives" from 14th to 26th September 2020. As announced earlier, the pre-registration deadline  is Friday 31st July, 2020.
The confirmation of your registration will begin on Monday 3rd August and continue until Friday 14th August 2020 during which period you will receive an email from the Organising Committee.
As your safety and well-being during the school are our absolute priority, the following sanitation and social distancing measures will be in place in the wake of the pandemic:
1. The main and only amphitheatre to be used for the daily classes has a capacity of 120 places for the 60 participants at the Summer School. This will allow for alternating seating (that is, one place occupied next to one place free).  (Recall that there will be no parallel sessions at the school.)
2. Participants will be accommodated in individual hotel rooms at the IGESA Center (unless you come with your partner or family of course).
3. The restaurant for all the mealtimes is sufficiently large to enable social distancing requirements to be fulfilled. There is additional seating at an outdoor terrace as well.
4.  The number of crossings will be increased for the ferry from Hyères (La Tour Fondue) to the island of Porquerolles to respect the rules for the number of persons per square metre.
You will find all the necessary information on the school website at  https://semanticshifts.sciencesconf.org<https://semanticshifts.sciencesconf.org/>
Please note that there will be some (relatively minor) changes in the programme because of the travel ban on the over-seas instructors.
