WORKSHOP
''Binding Theory and Invariants in Anaphoric Relations''
22 August 2005

Anaphoric invariants and binding theory have been one of the central
topics in formal linguistics and there have been interesting recent
developments in semantic approaches to binding theory, in the research
from psycholinguistics and neuro-imaging, and in the study of the
connections between binding and discourse. The aim of the workshop is
to stimulate the exchange of contributions on this subject between
HPSG and the results arising from other methodological or theoretical
persuasions.

A separate call containing a detailed description of the workshop can
be found at: http://bindingwksp.di.fc.ul.pt.

The format of submission and the deadlines for the workshop are
identical to that of the main conference.
