Call for papers: SNEWS 2015

Jon Ander Media writes:

The call for SNEWS 2015 is out. As always, the workshop is meant to be   a friendly venue for graduate students in Linguistics to present their  work in semantics. Presentations about ongoing research are most  welcome. On average, the goal is to have  2-3 presenters from each  school.

Those interested in presenting should let me know by September 30th, although titles are not due until October 31st. There is no need to send an  abstract and no need to provide a title (for the moment). This year SNEWS will be organized and hosted by Harvard.

- What: The talks should be 20 min + 10 min for questions.

- When: November 21, 2015

- Where: Department of Linguistics, Harvard University

- Who can present: Graduate students at the participating schools: Brown, Harvard, MIT, UConn, UMass, Yale.

- Who can attend: Graduate students, post-docs, visitors at the participating schools; faculty are encouraged to attend!

- What to expect: A day in which you get to hear about what other fellow graduate students are doing and chat with them over breakfast, lunch, and during coffee breaks (food and beverages provided). An evening which you are warmly invited to spend at a party hosted by one of our graduate

- Short description of SNEWS:

The Southern New England Workshop in Semantics (SNEWS) is an annual workshop for graduate students in Linguistics to present their research and receive feedback in an informal setting. Topics of  
presentation generally fall into any of the following categories (broadly defined): semantics, pragmatics, semantics/pragmatics interface, experimental and psycholinguistic investigations into semantic/pragmatic phenomena, etc. The workshop is meant to encourage the development and exchange of ideas through friendly interaction between students and faculty from different universities in the area. Universities that have participated in the past include UConn, UMass, Harvard, MIT, Brown, and Yale.
