Meeting Description:

The 10th Syntax and Semantics Conference in Paris (CSSP 2013) will take place on September 26-28, 2013. The Conference welcomes discussions that combine empirical inquiry and formal explicitness. CSSP aims at favouring comparisons between different theoretical frameworks. CSSP conferences combine a general session and a thematic session. The general session will address any topic on syntax, semantics, or the syntax-semantics interface. The thematic session will focus on experimental syntax and experimental semantics.

We invite you to join us for the 10th Colloque de Syntaxe et Sémantique à Paris (CSSP 2013) which will be held from September 26-28 2013 at Université Paris Diderot.
