The Center for General and Comparative Linguistics of the University of Wroclaw and the Institute of English Studies of the University of Warsaw are pleased to announce the 7th Meeting of the Generative Linguistics in Poland (GLiP-7).

‘Generative Linguistics in Poland’ (GLiP) is a series of conferences on various aspects of generative linguistics, created by Piotr Bański (University of Warsaw) and Adam Przepiórkowski (Institute of Computer Science, Polish Academy of Sciences). See for details.

GLiP meetings began as an attempt to bring together (i) Polish generative linguists, (ii) generative linguists working in Poland, as well as (iii) generative linguists working on Polish. However, the scope of GLiP has never been limited just to papers or authors belonging to the three categories. This year’s GLiP meeting is a continuation of this idea.

This year’s GLiP conference will be preceded by a PhD and Graduate Student Workshop on Friday, December 2, 2011.

Organizing Committee:

Joanna Błaszczak, University of WroclawKrzysztof Migdalski, University of WroclawWojciech Witkowski, University of WroclawPiotr Bański, University of Warsaw
