The 17th International Lexical Functional Grammar Conference (LFG12)

28 June - 1 July 2012 Udayana University, Bali, Indonesia

Conference website:

Conference e-mail (NOT for abstract submission):  lfg2012 "at"

Abstract submission receipt deadline:  15 February 2012, 11:59 pm GMT

Abstracts should be submitted online using the online submission system


LFG 2012 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

conferenceaims 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.

Further information about LFG as a syntactic theory is available at the

following sites:


The main conference sessions will involve 45-minute talks (30 min. + 15

min. discussion), and poster/system 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describe original, unpublished work.


As in previous years, we are hoping to hold a special session that will

give students the chance to present recent PhD dissertations (or other

student research dissertations). The dissertations must be completed by

the time of the conference, and they should be made publicly accessible

(e.g., on the World Wide Web). The talks in this session should provide

an overview of the main original points of the dissertation; the talks

will be 20 minutes, followed by a 10-minute discussion period. The

International LFG Association (ILFGA) will pay the conference fees for

the students presenting at the dissertation session.

Students should note that the main sessions are certainly also open to

student submissions.


Deadline for abstracts:  15 February, 2012

Acceptances sent out:  30 March, 2012

Conference:     28 June - 1 July, 2012

SUBMISSION SPECIFICATIONS Abstracts for talks, posters/demonstrations 
and the dissertation session

must be received by February 15, 2012. 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 two A4

pages in 10pt or larger type and should include a title. Omit name and

affiliation, and obvious self-reference. Note: we no longer ask for a

separate page for data and figures (c-/f- and related structures). They

can be included in the text of the abstract, obeying the overall

two-page limit. 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.

The number of submissions is not restricted.  However, the number of

oral presentations per participant is limited.  The author of a

single-authored paper which is accepted for oral presentation cannot

also appear as the sole author or first author of a second orally

presented paper.  Participants may be listed as the first author of at

most two jointly submitted papers accepted for oral presentation.

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 by at least three people. Papers will

appear in the proceedings, which will be published online by CSLI

Publications. Selected papers may also appear in a printed volume

published by CSLI Publications.


If you have queries about abstract submission or have problems using the

EasyChair submission system, please contact the Program Committee.
