Full Title: 16th International Lexical Functional Grammar Conference 
Short Title: LFG2011 

Date: 16-Jul-2011 - 19-Jul-2011
Location: Hong Kong, China 
Contact Person: Adams Bodomo
Meeting Email: lfg2011 at gmail.com
Web Site: http://www.hku.hk/linguist/lfg2011/lfg2011.html 

Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics; Linguistic Theories; Typology 

Call Deadline: 15-Feb-2011 

Meeting Description:

LFG 2011 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. 

Call For Papers

Submissions: Talks and Posters

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describe original, unpublished work.

Dissertation Session:

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, 2011
Acceptances sent out: 31 March, 2011
Conference: 16-19 July, 2011

Submission Specifications:

Abstracts for talks, posters/demonstrations and the dissertation session 
must be received by February 15, 2011. 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.

While the number of submissions is not restricted, at most one single-
authored submission or two first-authored submissions per person will be 
accepted for oral presentation. Authors may want to keep this in mind when 
stating their preferences concerning the mode of presentation of their 

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 

The conference will be held back-to-back with the Association for Linguistic 
Typology 9th Biennial Meeting, which will be held at the University of Hong 
Kong from 21 July to 24 July.
