Meeting Description: EILIN 2013 is open to everyone, welcoming undergraduate and graduate students from any country, as long as an interest in formal linguistics is shared. The main goal of EILIN 2013 is to bring together linguists from different areas with a common interest in generative linguistic. The Winter School will include courses at different levels: introductory, intermediate and advanced, and add to that, sessions for poster presentation.

Primarily intended for undergraduate students, the introductory course aims to facilitate the discovery of formal approaches and objects of study of the major language areas. Of the advanced courses in phonology, morphology, syntax and semantics, the aim is to disseminate the latest research in these areas and establish a bond between Brazilian researchers and from international institutions, making knowledge more accessible to researchers and contributing to the formation and improvement of South American linguists.

Introductory and advanced courses will be offered, with 50 openings each, on a first-come first-served policy, in the areas of phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics and psycholinguistics. There will be 4 courses per day, 1 ½ hour-long. The program follows below.

Semantics (introductory): Marcelo B. Ferreira (USP)
Semantics (advanced): Guillaume Thomas (Institut Jean Nicod)
Phonology/Morphology (introductory): Michael Becker (University of Indiana)
Phonology (advanced): Kie Zuraw (University of California - Los Angeles)
Acquisition of syntax: Jeremy Hartman (University of Massachusetts)
Neurolinguistics: Diogo Almeida (New York University - Abu Dhabi)
Historical Linguistics: Joel Wallenberg (Newcastle University)

LL Issue: 24.1485
