Meeting Description:

Formal Studies in Syntax and Semantics of Indian Languages (FOSSSIL)
announces the 5th LISSIM to take place in Kangra, May 25-June 8, 2011,
surrounded by the Dhaula Dhar range of Himalayan mountains. The
Summer School venue is ideal for communal living and learning, devoid of
the usual distractions of a city, town or even a touristy hill station.

The theme for the 5th LISSIM is 'Nanosyntax'

The teaching faculty will consist of the following established experts in
formal linguistics topics
KA Jayaseelan, English and Foreign Language University, Hyderabad
Zeljko Boskovic, University of Connecticut
Norvin Richards, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Michal Starke, CASTL, Tromso

Given popularity of the School, the admission to the School is likely to be
highly competitive and since the number of student participants is limited to
25, prospective participants are therefore requested to apply as soon as
possible. Students from India are requested to apply for membership to
FOSSSIL by writing an email of intention to secretaryfosssil.in. All
prospective students for the School are requested to send an email to the
same address with the following information latest by 1st April, 2011:
Name:

Qualification in Linguistics:
PhD/ Research Topic:
Reason for Participating in LISSIM: (max 500 words)

The first list of participants will be declared by 15th April and interviews by
video conferencing or in person in Delhi will be conducted 16-17th April.
The final list of selected participants will be made available during the week
of April 18th.
