On the occasion of the centenary of Berthold Delbrück’s death in 2022, Professor Paola Cotticelli-Kurras (Università degli Studi di Verona), Professor Velizar Sadovski (Österreichische Akademie der Wissenschaften – Vienna) and Dr. Filip De Decker (Marie Skłodowska-Curie European Fellowship holder, Università degli Studi di Verona) are planning to organise a Delbrück Symposium on Indo-European Syntax to be held in Verona on November 9 –12, 2022.

Abstracts can be submitted in French, Spanish, German, Italian or English, sending them to the three organisers:

It is also our intention to publish the proceedings of the Symposium.
