So off it goes for Poznan 2009. 
Like syntax and semantics, the phonology lineup this year focuses on 'external evidence' such as aphasia or real-time measures of brain activity that is brought to bear in order to argue about phonological theory. 
This orientation leans on another summer school that is organized together with EGG this year (something we've never had thus far), and which is specifically about SLI (as a piece of a project of Uli Sauerland's, COST). More on this soon in this theatre. 
Beyond this thematic focus, the phonology programme will however also offer regular classes that do not specifically draw on external evidence. 
To get the school off the ground, here are the first three teachers that have agreed to come to Poznan: 

- Charles Kisseberth (Tel Aviv) 
- Markus Pöchtrager (Istanbul) 
- Mary Ann Walter (Northwestern)
