There will be two sessions: a main session, with 30 minute presentations, and a poster session. The poster session is intended as a means of encouraging the presentation of work that is not yet fully mature.
Prospective speakers may submit either a 5 page abstract for the main session, or a 2 page abstract for the poster session. Abstracts submitted initially for the main session may be accepted, at the discretion of the program committee, for presentation in the poster session instead.
The main conference will be preceded by a workshop on ''Information Structure in Formal Grammar'' on 23 August.
Invited speaker: Mats Rooth (Cornell)
There is a separate call for papers for the workshop.
We will use an online submission system. All abstracts should be submitted via: http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=hpsg2011
Abstracts should be in PDF format.
Please direct any questions to the Program Committee Chair: hpsg2011easychair.org
All abstracts will be reviewed anonymously by at least two reviewers. Abstracts should not include the authors' names, and authors are asked to avoid self-references.

Abstract submission deadline: 1 April 2011
Notification of acceptance: 20 May 2011

The conference proceedings will be published online by CSLI Publications. Only papers presented in the main session will be included in the proceedings.

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as
such can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered
501(c) Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These
donations can be offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return
(U.S. tax payers only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match
any gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your

EMU Foundation fills in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple
administrative procedure that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without
costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment to check if your company
