**** Due to the ongoing Corona virus crisis and to the restrictions imposed by the Italian Government on university activities from October 2020 to January 2021, we announce that CGSW 35 won’t take place physically in October 2020. We are still finding an alternative solution and will let you know as soon as possible. ****
We are very proud to announce that the 35th Comparative Germanic Syntax Workshop will be held, for the first time of the conference’s history, in Italy, at Department of Humanities of the University of Trento.

Call for Papers
Following the conference’s consolidated tradition, we encourage submissions dealing with any aspect of comparative Germanic syntax. Moreover, in the light of the linguistic research carried out at the University of Trento, we encourage submissions also dealing with heritage German syntax or with a comparison of syntactic phenomena in a Germanic and in a non-Germanic language.
We invite submissions of anonymous abstracts for 40-minute talks including discussion. Submissions should not exceed two pages, 12pt. single spaced, with 2.5cm (= one-inch) margins on all sides. Abstracts should be in PDF format.
The conference’s language is English.
Please upload your abstracts at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=cgsw35 by 31 May 2020 (extended deadline)
All information concerning the conference including travel information and programme will be published on the conference webpage:https://event.unitn.it/cgsw35/
