The 40th GLOW colloquium will take place on March 14-18, 2017 in Leiden, The Netherlands. It will be hosted by the Leiden University Centre for Linguistics (https://www.universiteitleiden.nl/en/hum...). The colloquium will consist of a main colloquium (March 15 -17), and three workshops (on March 14).

Invited speaker: Hagit Borer (Queen Mary, University of London)

The main conference has no specific theme, therefore scholars are invited to submit and present papers within all areas of generative linguistics.

The three workshops to be held on March 14 have the following themes:

Workshop I: Syntax-Phonology Interface: What does Phonology need to know about Syntax and vice versa
Invited speaker: Eullàlia Bonet (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona)

Workshop II: Compositionality at the Interfaces
Invited speaker: Maribel Romero (Universitaet Konstanz)

Workshop III: Heritage Language Knowledge and Acquisition
Invited speaker : Silvina Montrul (University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign)

GLOW 40 will also be complemented by two special workshops, one hosted by Meertens (on March 13) and one by the University of Amsterdam and Meertens (March 18, by invitation only).
