Meeting Description: Five French labs are organizing an international workshop in Paris, focused on the work of Tobias Scheer, with the aim of assessing the current issues in theoretical Phonology and its interfaces. The purpose of the workshop is to discuss, pro et contra, the main theoretical contributions of the over sixty research papers (see www.unice.fr/dsl/tobweb/papers.htm) and his three books (published by Mouton de Gruyter) and to explore the directions of their subsequent developments:

- A lateral theory of phonology. Vol.1 : What is CVCV, and why should it be ? (2004)
- A Guide to Morphosyntax-Phonology Interface Theories. How Extra-Phonological Information is Treated in Phonology since Trubetzkoy's Grenzsignale (2011)
- Direct Interface and One-Channel Translation. A Non-Diacritic Theory of the Morphosyntax-Phonology Interface. Vol.2 of A Lateral Theory of Phonology (2012)
