The Minimalist Program is a trend in recent generative syntax which
subjects to critical scrutiny – and, if possible, eliminates – all
constructs that are not virtually conceptually necessary. Since the minimal
task of syntax is to mediate between form and meaning, the question is to
what extent all aspects of our model of syntax derive from the bare output
conditions imposed by these conceptually essential interfaces with form and
meaning. More generally, one can ask about the overall architecture of such
a grammar: What levels of representation does a viable minimalist grammar
need to have?; How are syntactic representations constructed?; and How are
these representations interpreted at the interfaces?

The purpose of the proposed workshop is to bring together scholars
concerned with these broader issues, but who are also engaged in providing
detailed analysis to specific linguistic problems and who work on a variety
of languages, in order to explore new ways of understanding the
organization of grammar and the workings of language.

Call for Papers:

The deadline for the conference has been extended to 10 August, 2011.

Abstracts are invited for 30 minutes presentations, followed by 10 minutes
of discussion. Submissions are limited to one individual and one joint
abstract per author. Abstracts should be sent strictly anonymously to:
minimalistworkshopuni-potsdam.de with 'Abstract' in the subject line. In
the body of the message, please include the names of the author(s),
affiliation(s), abstract title and an e-mail address. Abstracts should be
submitted in both Word and PDF formats, with all non-standard fonts
embedded in it. Abstracts should be typed in 11 pt font, with 1 inch (2,5
cm) margins on all sides, and be limited to one page of text, with an
