In addition to the general session, there will be two special sessions: one focusing on the syntax and semantics of number, case and agreement, and the other focussing on issues at the interfaces (e.g., the interactions and influences among syntax, semantics, pragmatics and phonology, including topics such as prosody, phonological and semantic phases, grammatical competition, etc.).
