		 JOINT CONFERENCE ON FORMAL GRAMMAR, 
	HEAD-DRIVEN PHRASE STRUCTURE GRAMMAR, AND CATEGORIAL GRAMMAR 

 		 August 14-16, 1998, 
			Saarbruecken, Germany

			
			SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS

FHCG-98 combines the 4th conference on Formal Grammar and the 5th conference 
on Head-driven Phrase Structure Grammar. It precedes the 10th European 
Summer School in Logic, Language, and Information (ESSLLI X).

AIMS and SCOPE 

FHCG-98 hopes to provide a platform for presentation of new and original 
research on formal grammar, head-driven phrase structure grammar, and
categorial grammar. 

Themes of interest include, but are not limited to,

* formal and computational syntax, semantics, and pragmatics; 
* head-driven phrase structure grammar and categorial grammar; 
* model-theoretic and proof-theoretic methods in linguistics; 
* constraint-based and resource-sensitive approaches to grammar;
* foundational, methodological and architectural issues in grammar.

SPECIAL EVENTS

The conference features a symposium on unbounded dependencies as well
as a special session on information packaging.

SYMPOSIUM on Unbounded Dependencies: Empirical Problems and Formal Techniques

Invited Speakers:

Anne Abeille 		(Paris 7 University)
Bob Carpenter 		(Bell Labs, Murray Hill)
Michael Moortgat 	(Utrecht University)
Ivan Sag 		(Stanford University)
Ed Stabler 		(UCLA)
Annie Zaenen 		(Xerox, Grenoble)

The symposium provides a comparison of recent work on unbounded dependencies 
from various theoretical angles. Relevant empirical issues include, but are 
not limited to, parasitic gaps, relative clauses, pied-piping, ATB-phenomena, 
weak and strong islands, comparatives, and the semantics of wh-questions. 

There will be presentations focussing on recent work in HPSG, LFG, TAG, CG,
and the Minimalist framework, followed by a panel discussion. 

SPECIAL SESSION on Information Packaging

Invited Speakers:

Elisabeth Engdahl (University of Gothenburg)
Enric Vallduvi (Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona, t.b.c.)

This session is concerned with formal approaches to information
packaging---those linguistic strategies which allow information
to be encoded in different ways, appropriate to different contexts,
emphasizing the interpretive significance of basic information
packaging distinctions and their grammatical realization within
and across natural languages.

The special session will consist of two invited lectures and
contributed papers appropriate to its theme.

SUBMISSION DETAILS

We invite E-MAIL submissions of abstracts for 30-minute papers 
(including questions and comments).

A submission should consist of two parts: 

- an information sheet (in ascii), containing the name of the author(s), 
 affiliation(s), e-mail and postal address(es), a title, and an 
 indication whether the paper is to be considered for the special session
 on information packaging;

- an abstract, consisting of a description of not more than 5 pages 
 (including figures and references). Abstracts may be either in plain 
 ASCII or in (unix-compatible encoded) postscript, PDF, or DVI. Please
 avoid using binhex or MIME.

Abstracts can be sent to
