Buhring (UCSantaCruz), Cedric Boeckx (UConn), Klaus Abels (UConn)

The school features both an intro-track, with 11 topical introductions 
(syntax, semantics, phonology, philosophy of language, psycholinguistics), 
and an advanced-track with 12 seminars + daily intensive discussion-sessions 
(the complete list of classes is at the end of the message).
