Meeting Description:

The Leipzig Lectures on Language—Combinatorics 2021 will finish with a virtual two-day symposium on October 20-21, 2021.

This end-of-year symposium will:
- Aim to find consensus across the different view presented during the online series.
- Feature William Matchin and Simona Mancini as keynote speakers whose work is particularly relevant to the theme of the lecture series and hands-on sessions.
- Offer four hands-on workshops on advanced methodologies relevant to the study of combinatorics in language taught by experts ( Topics will include grammatical predictors for fMRI, computational modelling in language development, eye-tracking and computational parsing, as well as language evolution and animal vocal communication.
- Bring together the community in a poster session and more informal gathering to exchange ideas on future research.

The goal of the event is to foster networking and collaborations, leading to new ideas on how to move the field forward.

Registration is free of charge for researchers of all levels (undergraduate students, graduate students, post-docs, as well as faculty). Notice that every hand-on session is limited to about 30 participants. Submitting an abstract is optional, however, researchers who submit an abstract for the virtual poster session during the registration process will be given priority.
