KWIGG 2010
(Konstanz Workshop in Generative Grammar)

Following the success of SWIGG 2009, we are happy to announce this year's workshop on formal syntax and semantics KWIGG - SWIGG 2010, which will be held at the University of Konstanz from April 9th to April 10th 2010.
KWIGG - SWIGG 2010 welcomes abstracts on any aspect of syntax, semantics and their interfaces. Abstracts are invited for 30-minute presentations plus 10 minutes for discussion.
The aim of the workshop is to promote a discussion among syntacticians and semanticists on analyses of various linguistic phenomena and, most importantly, to encourage doctoral students to present their own research and / or works-in-progress. This will be an excellent opportunity to disseminate research and to become acquainted with new research developments in the domains of syntax and semantics.

Alle Interessierten sind herzlich eingeladen.

Invited speakers:
Tobias Scheer (Nice)
Klaus Abels (UCL London)
Joseph Bogny (Cocody/Leiden)

Organising Committee:
Josef Bayer (University of Konstanz)
Antje Lahne (University of Konstanz)
Anamaria Bentea (University of Genf)
