Full Title: 16th International Lexical Functional Grammar Conference
Short Title: LFG2011

Date: 16-Jul-2011 - 19-Jul-2011
Location: Hong Kong, China
Contact Person: Adams Bodomo
Meeting Email: < click here to access email >

Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics; Linguistic Theories; Typology

Call Deadline: 15-Feb-2011

Meeting Description:

The conference aims to promote interaction and collaboration among researchers interested in non-derivational approaches to grammar, where grammar is seen as the interaction of (perhaps violable) constraints from multiple levels of structuring, including those of syntactic categories, grammatical relations, semantics and discourse.

Final Call for Papers:

The 16th International Lexical Functional Grammar Conference (LFG2011)
16-19 July, 2011
University of Hong Kong, China
Conference website: http://www.hku.hk/linguist/lfg2011/lfg2011.html
Conference e-mail (NOT for abstract submission): lfg2011 'at' gmail.com
Abstract submission receipt deadline: 15 February 2011, 11:59 pm GMT
Abstracts should be submitted online using the online submission system at
http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=lfg11

LFG 2011 welcomes work within the formal architecture of Lexical-Functional Grammar as well as typological, formal, and computational work within the 'spirit of LFG' as a lexicalist approach to language employing a parallel, constraint-based framework.

Further information about LFG as a syntactic theory is available at the following site:

http://www.essex.ac.uk/linguistics/external/LFG/

Submissions: Talks and Posters

The main conference sessions will involve 45-minute talks (30 min. + 15 min. discussion) and poster/system presentations. Contributions can focus on results from completed as well as ongoing research, with an emphasis on novel approaches, methods, ideas, and perspectives, whether descriptive, theoretical, formal or computational. Presentations should describe original, unpublished work.


Dissertation Session:

As in previous years, we are hoping to hold a special session that will give students the chance to present recent PhD dissertations (or other student research dissertations). The dissertations must be completed by the time of the conference, and they should be made publicly accessible (e.g., on the World Wide Web). The talks in this session should provide an overview of the main original points of the dissertation; the talks will be 20 minutes, followed by a 10-minute discussion period. The International LFG Association (ILFGA) will pay the conference fees for the students presenting at the dissertation session.

Students should note that the main sessions are certainly also open to student submissions.

Timetable:

Deadline for abstracts: 15 February, 2011
Acceptances sent out: 31 March, 2011
Conference: 16-19 July, 2011

Submission Specifications:

Abstracts for talks, posters/demonstrations and the dissertation session must be received by February 15, 2011. All abstracts should be submitted using the online submission system. Submissions should be in the form of abstracts only. Abstracts can be up to two A4 pages in 10pt or larger type and should include a title. Omit name and affiliation, and obvious self-reference. Note: we no longer ask for a separate page for data and figures (c-/f- and related structures). They can be included in the text of the abstract, obeying the overall two-page limit. Please submit your abstract in .pdf format (or a plain text file). If you have any trouble converting your file into pdf please contact the Program Committee at the address below.

While the number of submissions is not restricted, at most one single-authored submission or two first-authored submissions per person will be accepted for oral presentation. Authors may want to keep this in mind when stating their preferences concerning the mode of presentation of their submissions.

All abstracts will be reviewed by at least three people. Papers will appear in the proceedings, which will be published online by CSLI Publications. Selected papers may also appear in a printed volume published by CSLI Publications.

The conference will be held back-to-back with the Association for Linguistic Typology 9th Biennial Meeting, which will be held at the University of Hong Kong from 21 July to 24 July.

Organisers and their Contact Addresses:
