We are pleased to announce the call for papers for the Sixth International

2000 and has developed into a regularly held international forum for promoting
discussion and collaboration among linguists interested in Construction Grammar
and Frame Semantics, as well as related constructional approaches, including
their application in a wide range of empirical research. Previous conferences
took place in Berkeley, CA (2001), Helsinki (2002), Marseille (2004), Tokyo
(2006), and Austin, TX (2008). Further information about Construction Grammar
can be found at http://constructiongrammar.org

There is also a pre-conference workshop organized by Luc Steels and his research
associates, a two-day Tutorial on Fluid Construction Grammar (Sept. 1-2, 2010).
