LFG97 will take place in June 1997 at the University of
California-San Diego. Papers are invited both within the formal
architecture of Lexical-Functional Grammar and in the `spirit of
LFG', as a lexicalist approach to language within a parallel,
constraint-based framework.

There will be a series of 20-minute talks (with 10 minutes for
discussion), poster presentations, and workshops with invited
participants (see below). The talks and poster presentations may
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
