Call for Papers:
The 12th Syntax and Semantics Conference in Paris (CSSP 2017) will take place on November 23-25, 2017 at the École Nationale Supérieure (ENS), Paris. CSSP welcomes papers combining empirical inquiry and formal explicitness, and favours comparisons between different theoretical frameworks.

In light of the fact that work in semantics often addresses pragmatic issues and with the increasing prominence of both experimental and computational approaches CSSP now welcomes papers employing theoretical/experimental/computational methods in:

– Syntax
– Semantics
– Pragmatics
– The syntax-semantics interface
– The semantics-pragmatics interface
– Language acquisition: syntax-semantics-pragmatics

The thematic session will focus on the issue of: Discourse particles

Submission: We invite submissions for 40 minute presentations (including 10 minutes for discussion). CSSP is changing its submission procedures. Submissions are expected to describe substantial, original, completed and unpublished work, hence submissions should be up to 5 pages plus an extra page for references (anonymous pdf). The submission procedure and templates for abstracts are available at
