8th Workshop on Syntax & Semantics (WoSS)

Paris, France


We invite PhD students to send abstracts for twenty-minute talks
followed by a ten-minute discussion or poster presentations on any
aspect of theoretical linguistics for the 8th Workshop on Syntax &
Semantics (WoSS).

WoSS is a series of rotating workshops organized by PhD students from
'neighbouring' universities (see list below) for PhD students working
in different domains of generative linguistics, in a broad sense,
e.g. syntax, semantics, pragmatics, morphology, phonetics, phonology,
language acquisition, computational linguistics, etc.

The institutions behind WoSS are:
The University of Nantes
The University of the Basque Country in Vitoria-Gasteiz (EHU)
The Universities of Catalonia (UAB, UB, UPF, URV)
The Universities of Paris 3, Paris 7, Paris 8
The Universities of Madrid (IUOG, UAM, UCM)
The University of Sienna

This year's WoSS is co-organized by University Paris Diderot (Paris 7)
and University Paris Vincennes St-Denis (Paris 8), and will take place
at the CNRS `Pouchet' building, 59 rue Pouchet, 75017 Paris, on
November 17th-18th, 2011.
