Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics

Call Deadline: 17-Apr-2012

Meeting Description:

The aim of the workshop is to further current research on ellipsis within the HPSG community, and to encourage cross-framework discussion of ellipsis and its interface to syntax and semantics. Thus, we strongly encourage researchers from outside the HPSG framework to submit.

Invited Speaker:

Mark Steedman (University of Edinburgh)

Related Events:

The workshop on ellipsis is part of this year's HPSG conference, which will take place in Daejeon, South Korea, on 18-21 July 2012. It will be preceded by a day of tutorials for 'Experimental Design for Linguists' on 18 July given by Philip Hofmeister (University of Essex).

Call for Papers:

Abstracts are solicited for presentations which address linguistic, foundational, or computational issues relating to ellipsis phenomena and its interactions with formal syntax and semantics.

Workshop Format:

There will be two sessions: a main session, with 30 minute presentations (plus 10 min discussion), and a poster session. The poster session is intended as a means of encouraging the presentation of work that is not yet fully developed. 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.


We will use an online submission system. All abstracts should be submitted via the Easy Abstract System:


Abstracts should be in PDF format. Please direct any questions to the Program Committee Chair: hpsg2012programgmail.com. 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.

Important Dates:

Abstract submission deadline: 17 April 2012
Notification of acceptance: 20 May 2012
Conference: 19 July 2012


The workshop proceedings will be published online by CSLI Publications. Only papers presented in the main workshop session will be included in the proceedings. A call for contributions to the proceedings will be issued after the conference. Proceedings of previous conferences are available at: http://csli-publications.stanford.edu/HPSG/. The final deadline for receipt of written versions of conference papers is 15 November 2012.

Program Committee:

Doug Arnold, John Beavers, Rui Chaves, Jong-Bok Kim (Chair), Jason Merchant, Stefan Mueller, Myung-Kwan Park, Eric Potsdam, Ivan Sag, Mark Steedman, Tom Wasow, Shuichi Yatabe, Eun-Jung Yoo

Local Arrangements Chair:
