2nd Call for Papers:

The conference is sponsored by an international research network ( based at the lab Structures Formelles du Langage, and is funded by the CNRS and other member institutions. We invite submissions of abstracts for 20-minute talks and/or posters with lightning talks on any topic pertaining to the shared interests and assumptions of the network, as outlined at Abstracts must be anonymous and should be at most 2 pages (A4 or US Letter) in length, including examples and references, using a 12pt font with 1 inch (2.5 cm) margins on all four sides. These limitations will be strictly enforced. A single author can send no more than (i) one singly-authored and one co-authored abstract, or (ii) two co-authored abstracts. We will not accept papers that at the time of the conference have been published or have been accepted for publication.

Please keep in mind that this is an interdisciplinary conference, and write your abstract accordingly. Do mention the broad goals of the research (e.g. to understand language architecture, to understand brain architecture) and any subgoals, as well as the significance of your research in light of these goals. We very much welcome work on less-familiar languages; if you propose such an abstract, try to keep the dataset as streamlined as possible to give the audience a chance to understand the issues at stake for that particular language. Finally, if you work in a formal framework, explain your key proposal in words as well as in formal notation.
