Rethinking Comparative Syntax (ReCoS) is happy to announce the second Cambridge Comparative Syntax conference! CamCoS 2 is the follow-up to 2012's successful first instalment of CamCoS.

CamCoS 2 will be a two-day event, running 10-11 May 2013. The first day will be a general comparative generative syntax conference. The Call for papers is available on the conference webpage (link below).

The second day will feature invited speakers presenting their work in a certain area: focus. The central question regarding this topic is: ‘How can we know whether focus is represented in the narrow syntax?’

The invited speakers to CamCoS2 are:

Enoch Aboh (University of Amsterdam)
Stavros Skopeteas (University of Bielefeld)
Ad Neeleman and Hans van de Koot (University College London)
David Beaver (University of Texas at Austin)
Daniel Büring (University of Vienna)
Susanne Winkler (University of Tübingen)
