Conference Announcement
Call for Papers

TiLT 2001

The first conference on Tools in Linguistic Theory will take place at the
Utrecht institute of Linguistics OTS

July 6----July 8 2001

Abstracts are invited for 7 presentations on theoretical syntax.

Deadline for abstract receipt: Monday April 2nd, 2001 
Notification of acceptance: Monday April 30th, 2001 

The conference is specifically concerned with foundational issues in
theoretical syntax. The emphasis is on a strong reading of the term
'theoretical': issues directly concerned
with the model itself (the 'theory'), and the tools needed to further
develop the model. Issues include the nature of the primitive syntactic
objects, and the fundamental principles
governing the combinatorics of these objects (see the statement of purpose
at our web site for more background and details). The format of the
conference is very much workshop-like with ample opportunity for discussion
(during and after presentations) in a setting which facilitates effective
informal interaction. The conference will have 14 presentations. 

7 presentations will be given by invited speakers. Invited speakers will
include: 

- Edwin Williams
- Chris Collins
- Samuel Epstein
- Michael Brody
- Dominique Sportiche
- Ed Stabler

7 presentations will be selected on the basis of the submitted abstracts. 

Selected presentations will be 45 minutes including discussion (and
interaction during presentation). 

Selected speakers will be offered free meals and lodging during the
conference and may expect to be reimbursed for reasonable travel expenses. 

Authors should limit themselves to one single and one joint abstract. 

Abstracts should be at most two pages long, in a 12 point font with 1-inch
margins. They may be sent either electronically (name, address, affiliation
in the body, the abstract itself anonymous; WordPerfect, PDF, or MSWord
attachments) or by regular mail (1 copy with name, address and affiliation,
5 anonymous copies). E-mailed abstracts should be sent to tiltlet.uu.nl.
