 Kyung Hee University, Seoul, South Korea
 8-9 August 2002

The 9th International Conference on HPSG will take place on 8-9 August
2001, on the campus of the Kyung Hee University in Seoul, South Korea.
The conference will be co-hosted by the Linguistic Society of Korea
(LSK) and the Center for the Study of Language, Kyung Hee University,
as part of the LSK Summer Conference 2002.

(The Linguistic Society of Korea Conference will take place at the
same location on 5-7 August, 2002, immediately preceding HPSG-2002.
The final day of the LSK Conference, August 7, will feature workshops
of interest to practitioners of diverse theoretical frameworks. More
information on these workshops will be posted later.)

HPSG-2002 solicits abstracts for presentations that address
linguistic, foundational, or computational issues relating to the
framework of Head-Driven Phrase Structure Grammar.

Workshop on Greek Syntax


University of Reading, 20-22 September 2002


In the last ten years the Minimalist Program has increasingly become
more influential in syntactic research. The deepening of this theory
has been accompanied by a parallel extension of its empirical
basis. Also in the last ten years the field of Greek Syntax has been
expanding fast. There are increasingly more ambitious publications in
mainstream journals as well as other activities (annual and biannual
conferences, two journals, Glossologia and the newly launched Journal
of Greek Linguistics, etc.) revealing this dynamism. We are therefore
at the point where a workshop on Greek Syntax examined within the
framework of Minimalism is both possible and desirable. It is hoped
that the results will shed light on some thorny problems of Greek
Syntax and will provide a testing ground for the theory's claims and

Guidelines for the submission of abstracts:

Abstracts are invited for thirty-minute talks (with an additional ten
minutes for discussion) in areas of Greek Syntax within a Minimalist
perspective. Abstracts should be no longer than two pages including
references and examples, with margins of at least 1-inch, letter size
12. Submissions are limited to either one individual or one joint
abstract per author. Please provide 2 copies of the abstract
containing title, author's name, affiliation, and email address. A
separate card should contain the title of the paper, author's name,
affiliation, address, telephone number, and email address. Electronic
submissions (as a Word document attachment) are encouraged. Selected
papers will be published in a special volume.

Please declare your interest in participating by 15 January 2002.
