Meeting Description:

The 41st GLOW conference (GLOW 41) will take place between 10-14 April 2018 in Budapest, Hungary. It will be organized by the Research Institute for Linguistics of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences ( The conference will consist of a main colloquium (11-13 April, Wed to Fri) and four thematic workshops (on Tue, 10 April and Sat, 14 April).

The main conference has no specific theme so scholars are invited to submit and present papers within all areas of generative linguistics. Submissions on phonological topics are especially welcome.

The following workshops will accompany the main colloquium:

- Long-distance segmental phenomena (organized by Péter Rebrus, Péter Szigetvári and Miklós Törkenczy)

- Predication in relation to propositions and properties (organized by Maria Polinsky & Marcel den Dikken)

- The Grammar and Pragmatics of Interrogatives and Their (Special) Uses (organized by Beáta Gyuris & Hans-Martin Gaertner)

- Sign Language Syntax and Linguistic Theory (organized by Balázs Surányi & Marcel den Dikken)

GLOW 41 will also be complemented by the yearly meeting of the Phonological Theory Agora network with a thematic workshop on ''The necessity of formalization in phonology''.
