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 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.

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


Final Call for Papers:


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 Presentations should describe original, unpublished work.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.

Abstracts should be submitted online using the online submission system at:



Deadline for abstracts: 15 February 2012, 11:59 pm GMT
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 15 February 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.

Organisers and their Contact Addresses:
