 CALL FOR ABSTRACTS

 1994 CONFERENCE ON HEAD-DRIVEN PHRASE STRUCTURE GRAMMAR:
 EXPLANATORY MECHANISMS AND EMPIRICAL CONSEQUENCES

 *******************

 August 6-7, 1994
 (Immediately preceeding ESSLII-5
 The 5th European Summer School in Language Logic and Information)
 University of Cophenhagen

Recent years have seen the emergence an international community
employing HPSG as a framework for linguistic research. Much previous
and ongoing work has focused on the one hand on detailed studies of
linguistic phenomena in a handful of languages (especially English,
German, and Korean); and on the other hand on technical issues of
formalization and computational implementation.

However, the original impetus for the development of HPSG arose from a
desire to provide theories of natural language structure, with respect
to both universal grammar and the multitude of specific human
languages, that are formally explicit and have genuine empirical
consequences. THE 1994 CONFERENCE ON HPSG SOLICITS ABSTRACTS FOR
PAPERS WHICH BRING TO BEAR THE EXPLANATORY POTENTIAL OF HPSG FOR
ILLUMINATING ANALYTICAL PROBLEMS OF EMPIRICAL PHENOMENA, BOTH
CROSS-LINGUISTICALLY AND FOR PARTICULAR LANGUAGES. Particularly
welcome are papers which elaborate or provide alternatives to existing
explanatory resources, or which extend the scope of the framework
beyond syntax and semantics to encompass the interfaces with other
linguistic components (such as phonology, morphology, pragmatics, and
language processing). Preference will be given to submissions which
are strongly grounded in rich bodies of linguistic phenomena, or which
bring to light new, poorly understood, or little-studied phenomena.
Abstracts to be presented will be selected by an international panel
of referees.

PRESENTATIONS: Authors should plan on 45 minutes for presentation and
question period.

ABSTRACT REQUIREMENTS: Abstracts must not exceed in length two
standard-size pages in unreduced type, with one additional page for
examples and figures. A title, but not the author's name, should
appear on the abstract. Either electronic (preferred) or hard-copy
submission is permissible.

ELECTRONIC SUBMISSION: to HPSG94ling.ohio-state.edu. Use ASCII text
only, free of formatting commands. Text of the abstract itself should
be preceeded by the following essential author data:

 Title of paper
 Name of Author
 Affiliation
 Mailing Address
 Email adress (preferred) or phone number

HARD COPY SUBMISSION: eight copies of abstract, plus one copy of
essential author data on a separate page, to:

 HPSG94
 Department of Linguistics
 Ohio State University
 Columbus, OH 43210
 USA

DEADLINE FOR RECEIPT OF ABSTRACTS: February 11, 1994

ANNOUNCEMENT OF ACCEPTANCES: March 14, 1994
