In addition to the main session, there will be three thematic workshops:

Workshop I: Prosody in speech signal, perception and gestures

Organized by Marzena Zygis and Stefanie Jannedy (Leibniz – ZAS Berlin)

Workshop II: Semantic Universals in the Modal and Attitudinal Domain

Organized by Uli Sauerland (Leibniz – ZAS Berlin) and Wataru Uegaki (University of Edinburgh)

Workshop III: Remarks: the Legacy

Organized by Artemis Alexiadou (Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin & Leibniz – ZAS Berlin) and Hagit Borer (Queen Mary University London)

For the main colloquium, which will include a poster session as well, scholars are invited to submit unpublished papers within all areas of generative linguistics. Submissions on phonological topics are especially welcome. The three workshops have their own topics and expect papers relating to them.

Call for papers

An author may submit a maximum of two abstracts to the main colloquium, only one of which may be single authored. The same abstract may not be submitted to both the main colloquium and a workshop. However, the same person may submit two different single-authored abstracts to the main colloquium and a workshop.


Abstracts for the main colloquium and workshops are to be submitted via Easychair. Please note that the main colloquium and the three regular workshops each have their own submission site, for the latter check the workshop’s page.

  • Abstracts, including references and data, must not exceed two pages (A4 or letter size) with 1 inch (2.54cm) margins on all sides.
  • Font must be set in Times New Roman with a font size no smaller than 12pt. Font size in displays and references may be smaller.
  • Examples, tables, graphs, etc. must be interspersed into the text of the abstract, rather than collected at the end.
  • The submission must not reveal the identity of the author(s) in any way. (Note that files uploaded to Easychair are renamed by the system, but a PDF file may contain hidden information about its author or creator.)
