Meeting Description:

The Workshop on Negation will be held on 30 July as an online event.

Past work in HPSG covered diverse aspects of negation in different languages, as shown, for example, by the proceedings volumes of previous HPSG conferences. For this workshop, we invite contributions from all areas of grammatical description, including (but not limited to) phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics and pragmatics, to continue this rich tradition.

Contributions to the workshop do not necessarily have to be couched in HPSG, but an explicit relationship to or a discussion of constraint-based methods are considered a plus. We would also like to emphasize that analyses phrased in neighboring frameworks such as Construction Grammar, Lexical Functional Grammar, Tree Adjoining Grammar or Categorial Grammar are very welcome.

Workshop Format:
The workshop on negation will take place following the two-day main HPSG 2021 conference. Presentations will be pre-recorded and pre-loaded on the conference website, and the discussion period will be online.

Call for Papers:

Two types of submissions for the workshop are invited:
- Long papers (4-page abstract + 1 page data, figures & references; 20 minute pre-recorded presentation + 15 minute online discussion)
- Short papers (2-page abstract + 1 page data, figures & references; 10 minute pre-recorded presentation + 10 minute online discussion)
Please note that abstracts submitted for the ''long paper'' track can be accepted as ''short papers'' (and vice versa). Only ''long papers'' will appear in the proceedings.

All abstracts should be submitted in PDF format via:

All abstracts will be reviewed anonymously by at least two reviewers. The submissions should not include the authors' names, and authors are asked to avoid self-references. Please direct any questions to the Program Committee Chair: Nurit Melnik (

A call for contributions to the proceedings will be issued after the Conference. Proceedings of previous conferences are available at:
