Going Romance is the European conference series that focuses on Romance languages from the perspective of current linguistic theorizing.

In the two decades of its existence, it has developed into the major European discussion forum for theoretically relevant research on Romance languages where current ideas about language in general and about Romance languages in particular are discussed.

The twenty-eighth symposium on Romance linguistics will be held in Lisbon at Faculdade de Ciências Sociais e Humanas as a joint initiative of the Linguitics centers of Universidade Nova de Lisboa and Universidade de Lisboa.

The conference includes two days of general sessions, for which papers on all aspects and disciplines of Romance linguistics are invited, and three workshops with parallel sessions on the third day. A joint plenary conference by Luigi Rizzi will open the workshops sessions.
