In the ANNESSO CARTESIANO, Elisabeth Kriechbaum and Henk van Riemsdijk host small conferences and workshops, primarily but not exclusively in linguistics. We have a meeting room in which we can place up to 25 participants in a round-table configuration or up to 50 in a configuration with rows of seats. Look at the picture page to get an impression.
The first Annesso Cartesiano Workshop was held in July 2011. It was on “The Representation of Linguistic Structures” and had 27 participants. A book entitled “Representation in Phonology and Syntax”, edited by Marc van Oostendorp and Henk van Riemsdijk, will soon appear with Mouton de Gruyter publishers.
The next upcoming event is a small workshop on Swiss German syntax. There will be around 12 participants and the workshop will take place in early September 2013.

We have 6 in-house guestrooms, about three true doubles and three others that can be used as singles or doubles depending on the girth and degree of intimacy of the occupants, i.e. between 6 and 12 participants. When there are more, we use a nice hotel in the vicinity.
