LFG22 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.


SUBMISSIONS: TALKS AND POSTERS, DISSERTATION SESSION

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 Presentations should describe original, unpublished work. There is also a special session for recent dissertations (20-minute talk + 10 min discussion).


TIMETABLE

Deadline for abstracts: 15 February 2022, 23:59 UTC-12 (midnight anywhere on Earth)
Notification of acceptance: 31 March 2022


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.

For dissertation session submissions, please add ''Dissertation'' to the title of your abstract.

Please submit your abstract in .pdf format (or a plain text file).

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.
