GIST is proud to announce Cartographic Structures and Beyond, to take place on 12 and 13 May 2011 at Ghent University. This two day event will bring together a number of senior and junior linguists whose work shares the ultimate goal of showing how the linguistic data - both diachronic and synchronic - drawn from a number of diverse languages shed light on the general theory of language, and reciprocally, how the theory sheds new light on the linguistic data.

One aim of the conference will be that of showcasing recent work in the tradition of cartography and nanosyntax and in particular, presenting the progress made in elaborating the structural map of the clause and its constituents and on the 'syntactization' of the interpretive domains. Other papers will explore ways of integrating constraints on movement and/or on structure building with the functional hierarchies that have been established in the cartographic tradition. The latter theme is also the focus of the FWO-funded research project Layers of Structure and the Cartography Project at Ghent University http://www.gist.ugent.be/projectdescription. The PhD students involved in this research project will also be presenting their own work at this event. The 2011 event at Ghent University is conceived of as the launch of a yearly gathering at a number of European institutions.

The following linguists have agreed to participate at the event:

Enoch Aboh (University of Amsterdam)
Adriana Belletti (University of Siena)
Pavel Caha (CASTL University of Tromsø)
Guglielmo Cinque (University of Venice)
Lieven Danckaert (Ghent University)
Irene Franco (University of Leiden)
Jane Grimshaw (Rutgers University)
Eric Haeberli (University of Geneva)
Jim McCloskey (UC Santa Cruz)
Luigi Rizzi (University of Siena)
Ur Shlonsky (University of Geneva)
Michal Starke (CASTL University of Tromsø)
