Meeting Description:

We are very pleased to announce that the first workshop on syntax and semantics in China has been initiated and will be held at Nanjing University, from June 16 to June 17 (Saturday and Sunday) 2012. The conference aims at creating a cooperative, friendly and enlightening forum for anyone who are working on Chinese syntax and semantics. Young scholars and other colleagues who are working on the following topics are particularly welcome:

(1) The syntax and semantics of Chinese dialects
(2) The syntax and semantics of minority languages in China
(3) First language acquisition (lexical, syntactic and semantic) in bilingual contexts

Prof. Stephen Crain (distinguished professor in linguistics and cognitive sciences, Macquarie University, Australia)
Prof. Yafei Li (Professor of Linguistics at the University of Wisconsin at Madison, adjunct professor of Nanjing University)

Each talk will be 30 minutes, plus a 10-minitute discussion. Submissions are limited to one individual and one joint abstract per author.
