We are pleased to announce the X Workshop on Formal Linguistics, to be held on August 28-29, 2014 at Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS) in Porto Alegre, Brazil.

The workshop welcomes papers on any topic concerning formal accounts of meaning and/or grammatical structure with relevance to current linguistic theory - in particular, those exploring core aspects of the organization of linguistic knowledge and interface phenomena (syntax-semantics, semantics-pragmatics, syntax-pragmatics, syntax-prosody, morphology-semantics, etc.).

The conference is open to work done from any theoretical perspective in formal linguistics. The official language of the conference is English.

Invited speakers:

Gennaro Chierchia (Harvard University, USA)
John Beavers (University of Texas at Austin, USA)
Rodolfo Ilari (UNICAMP, Brazil)
Márcia Cançado (UFMG, Brazil)
