A new seminar has started at Vinogradov Russian Language Institute in Moscow: “Проблемы кодификации норм современного русского языка” (Problems of codification of norms of the modern Russian language). Seminar leaders are Alexei Shmelev and Yelena Beshenkova, some materials are available on the webpage.
It is interesting if their purpose is just theoretical research or some practical results — like new reference materials — as well.
