Meeting Description: The conference is organized by the Institute for Modern Linguistic Research, SMSUH and the Institute of Linguistics.

The priority will be given to paper proposals discussing the interaction of morphological and syntactic mechanisms, interfaces between syntax, prosody and information structure and showing the interplay of general, type-specific and language-specific morphological and syntactic features through the detailed analysis of world’s languages. Submissions will be rated by experts and selected by the organizing committee.

The organizing committee is planning thematic panels on clitics and word order, case marking, polypredicative constructions and diachronic typology.

Plenary Speakers:

Tomas Riad (The University of Stockholm)
Sergei Tatevosov (Lomonosov Moscow State University)
