The Workshop Acquisition at the Interface will be held in Tromsø, Norway, at the Center for Advanced Study in Theoretical Linguistics (CASTL), University of Tromsø. The goal of this workshop is to provide an occasion for researchers, who work on acquisition of phenomena pertaining to interfaces (e.g., syntax-pragmatics, syntax-semantics, morphology-phonology, and etc.), to present their recent findings, exchange ideas and address new questions in the field.

Call for Papers:
Submissions of abstracts are invited with reference to the following issues:
- How do various language learners acquire linguistic phenomena pertaining to interfaces?

- Which interfaces are more/less vulnerable?
- What is the difference between intra-linguistic interfaces (e.g., morphology-semantics) and extra-linguistic interfaces (e.g., syntax-pragmatics)?
Anonymous abstracts should be a maximum of one page in length with an additional page for examples, figures, tables, and references.
