Meeting Description:

Every year the graduate students of the Linguistics Department of the
University of Maryland organize a linguistics workshop focusing on a
different aspect of language. The goal of this year's MayFest is to bring
together researchers from various disciplines to discuss the use of
hierarchy and flat structures in language.

MayFest 2007 is taking concrete shape! Find below the schedule and the
topics of the talks.

For the abstracts and updated information on accommodation please visit
