Meeting Description:

LFG19: The 24th International Lexical-Functional Grammar Conference

8 July - 10 July 2019
Australian National University, Canberra

LFG19 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. 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.

LFG19 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. 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.

As Australia and the region are home to many of the world’s languages, we welcome papers applying
LFG approaches to describing lesser studied languages.

We will also organise a workshop on the ‘Syntax and Morphology Interface in LFG’ on 10th July 2019.

There will be a Teach-in on LFG for Historical Linguistics on 6th July 2019, organised in
conjunction with ICHL24 (1st-5th July 2019, also held in Canberra).


Submissions: Talks and Posters

The main conference sessions will involve 45-minute talks (30 min + 15 min discussion), and poster
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 Presentations should describe original, unpublished work.

Timetable

Deadline for abstracts: 15 February 2019, 23:59 GMT
Notification of acceptance: 29 March 2019


Submission Specifications

The language of the conference is English, and all abstracts must be written in English.

All abstracts should be submitted using the online submission system. Submissions should be in the
form of abstracts only. Abstracts can be up to three A4 pages, including figures and
references. Abstracts should be in 10pt or larger type, with margins of at least 2cm on all four
sides, and should include a title. Omit name and affiliation (including in PDF document properties),
and avoid obvious self-reference.

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. (On the
Easychair submission system, if you upload your abstract as a .pdf file, please simply type
'abstract attached' in the abstract box.)

The number of submissions is not restricted. However, in the interests of high participation and
broad representation, each author should be involved in a maximum of two oral papers and can only be
a single author of one. There are no restrictions on poster presentations. 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 anonymously by at least three referees. Papers accepted to the
conference can be submitted to the refereed proceedings, and will be published, subject to
acceptance, online by CSLI Publications. (Please note that papers submitted to the proceedings are
no longer automatically accepted for publication in the proceedings.) See
http://web.stanford.edu/group/cslipublications/cslipublications/LFG/ for recent proceedings.
