Dear all,

Here's the second call for papers for the 15th
International Conference on Head-Driven Phrase
Structure Grammar (HPSG-2008).


HPSG-2008 will take place on 28-30 July, 2008, near the
historic cities of Nara and Kyoto in Japan.

Invited Speakers

Mutsumi Imai (Keio University)
Tibor Kiss (Ruhr-Universit"at Bochum)
Stephen Wechsler (University of Texas at Austin)

Call for Papers

Abstracts are solicited for presentations which address
linguistic, foundational, or computational issues
relating to the framework of Head-Driven Phrase Structure
Grammar.  Each presentation will be allotted 40 minutes,
but the talk itself must be at most 30 minutes long,
leaving at least 10 minutes for discussion.

The last day of the conference will be devoted to a
workshop on "Grammar at the Interfaces", whose purpose
is to explore not just various problems regarding
grammar-internal interfaces (such as the syntax-semantics
interface and the morphology-syntax interface) but also
issues surrounding the interface between competence grammar
and extragrammatical factors.  Papers that do not utilize
the theoretical framework of HPSG will be as welcome as
papers that do.


We will use an online submission system. All abstracts should be
submitted via http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=hpsg2008
Abstracts should be in PDF format and should not be more than
5 (five) pages long.

Please direct any questions to the Program Committee Chair:
hpsg2008 at easychair.org

Abstracts for the main conference should mention 'HPSG-08' and
abstracts for the workshop should mention 'Workshop-08' in the
title.  All abstracts will be reviewed anonymously by at least
two reviewers.  Abstracts should not include the authors' names and
authors are asked to avoid self-references.  The Program Committee
reserves the right to reassign accepted papers from the main
conference to the workshop, and vice versa.

Important Dates

Abstract submission deadline:   March 1, 2008
Notification of acceptance:     April 15, 2008
Conference:     July 28-30, 2008


The conference proceedings will be published online by CSLI

issued after the conference. Proceedings of previous conferences are
available at http://csli-publications.stanford.edu/HPSG/. The final
deadline for receipt of written versions of conference papers is
October 25, 2008.
