Meeting Description:

LISSIM is a highly successful annual event in the Linguistics calendar, where a group of very committed individuals discuss formal, theoretical aspects of various syntactic and semantic issues of a number of languages (10-15) in workshop mode as well as through classroom teaching. Student presentations and individual meetings with renowned faculty are other regular features of the School. For obvious reasons, admission to the School is highly competitive.

The admission to the School is highly competitive and since the number of student participants is limited to 20 (MA-2, MPhil-6, PhD-10), 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 as per the schedule below:

Preliminary email of interest with following information by 20 February 2012:

Qualification in Linguistics (details of syntax-semantics courses):
MA diss./PhD/ Research Topic:

How would LISSIM 6 help you in sharpening your research question and in looking for a possible answer?

[The essay must emphasize on theoretical issues and any new findings that may contribute towards research in Syntax and Semantics; summaries of other scholars' works strictly discouraged]

The first list of participants will be declared by 15 April 2012.

Interviews by video conferencing or in person in Delhi will be conducted 16-17 April 2012 (earlier interviews may be arranged for overseas participants, if required).
