Meeting Description: The European dialect syntax network EdiSyn and the DFG-funded Project SYNALM organize the seventh European Dialect Syntax Meeting in Konstanz (Germany), June 13-15, 2013. The conference seeks to bring together researchers in the field of dialect syntax and syntactic microvariation. Contributions that address the formal modeling of syntactic variation are especially welcome.

Invited speaker: Richard Kayne

We plan to reserve one afternoon for exchanging practical issues concerning the methods (and problems) for handling huge amounts of variational data; representational tools etc. If you want to make a contribution to this part or simply participate, let us know in advance by emailing us (ellen.brandner@uni-konstanz.de)
