- It was exactly 25 years ago that Paul Smolensky introduced Harmony Theory (Smolensky, 1986), a framework that would pursue
an exciting, but certainly not straight path through linguistics (namely, Optimality Theory) and other cognitive domains.
The goal of this workshop is not so much to look back to this path, but rather to discuss its potential continuation(s).
