Call for Papers:

Main Session:

Contributions combining theory and data in a plurality of domains of grammar are welcome. We especially invite papers set in a formal framework with a solid empirical basis in all areas of Romance linguistics: phonology, morphology, syntax and semantics. This year the conference also aims at being a moment of discussion and reflection on methodological issues. In particular, we will focus on how to combine detailed theoretical questions and clear predictions with different sets of empirical or experimental data.

There will be both oral presentations (25 + 10 minutes) and poster presentations.

Abstracts should be anonymous and no longer than two A4 pages, including references and examples, with margins of at least 1 inch, font size 12, single-spaced. The file should be anonymous both in the body of the text and in the filename. Please make sure all fonts and figures are correctly rendered.
Submissions are limited to a maximum of one individual and one joint abstract per author. Please indicate in your submission whether your abstract should be considered for the main session, or for one of the workshops (as an oral presentation or a poster).

Papers not conforming to these requirements will not be taken into consideration.

The abstracts should be submitted through EasyChair (

Deadline for abstract submission:
11 July 2016; 23:59 UTC/GMT +1
(There will be no deadline extension).

All authors who present their work in the Main Session will be invited to submit their paper for a volume of selected contributions to be published by John Benjamins. A publication for the workshop contributions is also foreseen.
