Conference: SICOGG 24

The Seoul International Conference on Generative Grammar (SICOGG) is an annual conference bringing together generative linguistics from East Asia and around the world to present and discuss current research related to generative syntax and its interfaces. Each year, SICOGG invites a keynote speaker to deliver a series of lectures on a special topic related to the speaker’s current research. Due to the ongoing pandemic, SICOGG 24 will take place virtually in Seoul, Korea, from August 12 – 14, 2022. The conference will be hosted by the Korean Generative Grammar Circle.
