Vincent Homer and Rajesh Bhatt of UMass Amherst contacted us asking us to help get the word out about a workshop on obligatoriness that they are organizing in Tbilisi, Republic of Georgia on September 22nd 2015, as part of TbiLLC 2015: Eleventh International Tbilisi Symposium on Language, Logic and Computation. The title of their workshop is How to make things happen in the grammar: the implementation of obligatoriness and the abstract deadline is May 21st 2015. Invited speakers include Omer Preminger of Maryland and Ivy Sichel of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel. The questions that the conference hopes to shed light on are (i) whether a unified treatment of obligatoriness is possible (ii) whether the different kinds of obligatoriness we find might correlate with the part of grammar we are dealing with. More detailed information and a Call for Papers can be found at the workshop web-site and also here.
