Meeting Description:

The 14th Syntax and Semantics Conference in Paris (CSSP 2021) will take place on December 9-11, 2021 at Université de Paris, Campus Rive Gauche (former Paris-Diderot). We plan to hold the event in a hybrid format, i.e., with both physical and virtual attendance. Depending on the development of the pandemic, we may have to revert to an online-only conference.
Le quatorzième Colloque de Syntaxe et Sémantique à Paris (CSSP 2021) aura lieu du 9 au 11 décembre 2021 à l’Université de Paris, Campus Rive Gauche (anciennement Paris-Diderot). Nous prévoyons d’organiser l’événement sous un format hybride, avec à la fois des interventions en présentiel et visioconférence. Le développement de l’épidémie pourrait toutefois nous contraindre à passer à un format uniquement virtuel.
