4th Workshop on Syntax and Semantics (WoSS) 2006

Université Paris 8 - Université Paris 3

September 13th - 15th 2006


The theme of the workshop is in line with fundamental domains of linguistics: formal syntax and semantics. The major goal of the workshop is to welcome communications by students from different backgrounds, selected on the basis of evaluated abstracts, and whose research is linked to one (or both) of these fundamental linguistic domains.

More specifically, the goal of this workshop is to give a chance for students from different universities to meet and present their work. Moreover, this event provides the opportunity to get used to the exercise of abstract submission and oral communication in English, and aims also to develop the ability to express constructive criticism.
