Meeting Description:

The 11th Syntax and Semantics Conference in Paris (CSSP 2015) will take place on October 8-10th, 2015 at Université Paris 7 – Paris Diderot. The Conference welcomes papers combining empirical inquiry and formal explicitness. CSSP aims at favouring comparisons between different theoretical frameworks. CSSP conferences combine a general session and a thematic session. This year's topic is: Global or genre/domain-dependent grammar?

The 11th Syntax and Semantics Conference in Paris (CSSP 2015) will take place on October 8-10, 2015 at Université Paris 7 – Paris Diderot. The conference welcomes papers combining empirical inquiry and formal explicitness. CSSP aims at favouring comparisons between different theoretical frameworks. CSSP conferences combine a general session and a thematic session.

General session: In light of the fact that work in semantics often addresses pragmatic issues and with the increasing prominence of both experimental and computational approaches CSSP now welcomes papers employing theoretical/experimental/computational methods on:

- Syntax
- Semantics
- Pragmatics
- The syntax-semantics interface
- The semantics-pragmatics interface
- Language acquisition: Syntax-semantics-pragmatics


The thematic session will focus on the issue of: Global or genre/domain-dependent grammar?

In both computational and sociolinguistic work the need to accommodate domain or genre dependence has long been recognised. More recently, there have been proposals among semanticists and philosophers of language that grammars or languages can be created on the fly and that, consequently, there is no single grammar/language. Among syntacticians there is increasing awareness of the importance of genre/domain on the availability and meaning of grammatical and lexical constructions. We welcome theoretical and empirical contributions addressing the issue of how to accommodate domain or genre dependence in grammatical frameworks: the impact this has for grammar architectures and for context/grammar interfaces, does it necessitate the recognition of core/periphery within a single grammar?

Submission: CSSP is changing its submission procedures. Submissions are expected to describe substantial, original, completed and unpublished work, hence submissions should be up to 5 pages plus an extra page for references (anonymous pdf). Precise specifications and templates will be available on the CSSP website.
