Abstracts should be submitted using the online submission system at


Invited speakers:

Geoffrey K. Pullum (University of Edinburgh) and Peter Sells (University of

LFG17 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.


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

and poster presentations. Contributions can focus on results from completed
as well as

ongoing research, with an emphasis on novel approaches, methods, ideas, and

whether descriptive, theoretical, formal or computational. Presentations
should describe

original, unpublished work.


Deadline for abstracts:  15 February 2017, 23:59 GMT

Notification of acceptance:  30 March 2017

Conference:  25 July -27 July 2017


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:
two pages total for

text, plus one page for diagrams, in 10pt or larger type and including a
title. Omit name and

affiliation (including in PDF document properties), and avoid obvious

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

below. (On the Easychair submission system, if you upload your abstract as
a .pdf file,

please simply type 'abstract attached' in the abstract box.)

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

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

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, which will be
published online by

CSLI Publications. See http://web.stanford.edu/group/cslipublications/
cslipublications/LFG/ for

recent proceedings.


The conference will be preceded by an excursion on 24 July (possibly
including an overnight

stay in the Danube valley).

There will be an XLE tutorial on the day following the conference.

Details will be announced nearer the time.


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

submission system, please contact the Program Committee.
