PURPOSE

"Lexical and Constructional Explanations in Constraint-Based Grammars"
is the theme of a number of common workshops to be held as a part of
the Berkeley Formal Grammar Conference 2000 at the University of
California, Berkeley from July 19-23 2000. The Berkeley event will
also consist of:

	LFG2000, July 19-20,
	URL: http://www-lfg.stanford.edu/lfg/lfg2000/

	HPSG-2000, July 22-23,
	URL: http://hpsg.stanford.edu/hpsg2000

We welcome submissions of proposals for workshops that are of common
interest to the LFG, HPSG, and Construction Grammar communities and
are likely to further interactions between the three. Workhops talks
should be on a coherent topic that can be expected to generate
opposing views and discussion with the broader audience. Workshop
papers should be distributed in advance among participants and
participants should refer to each other's approaches. Each workshop
can accommodate introductory remarks framing the issues and three to
four 30-minute talks.

Proposals should contain:

1. Title of the proposed workshop.
2. Short statement explaining its relevance to the LFG and HPSG
 conferences. 
3. List of preliminary participants to be invited,
 OR: 
 statement of intent to organize such a workshop with 
 a preliminary CFP.

(Potential workshop organizers should note that the conference cannot
provide any financial support to workshop participants.)
