Meeting Description:

The workshop 'Non-local dependencies in the nominal and verbal domain' will be held in Lisbon, CLUNL, Universidade
Nova de Lisboa on 13 November 2015. The event is sponsored by the Portuguese National Science Foundation
(Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia - FCT) and will bring together some leading figures in syntax to discuss
current issues such as multiple instantiations of agreement, local and non-local case assignment and agreement within
the nominal and verbal domains, subject versus object agreement, and locality and minimality effects in agreement
versus movement (Agree versus Merge). In addition, we will hold a poster session for PhD students willing to present
their proposals on any syntactic topic. The workshop will be held at CLUNL/LiFE, Universidade Nova de Lisboa. One of the goals of the workshop is the publication of a peer-reviewed edited volume. This will provide an opportunity for young researchers to publish together with well-known experts in the field.
