HEADLEX16 welcomes work within the formal architectures of Lexical-Functional Grammar
(LFG) and Head-Driven Phrase Structure Grammar (HPSG), as well as typological, formal, and
computational work within the spirit of these theories.

The conference aims to promote interaction and collaboration among researchers interested
in HPSG and LFG. There will be no separate sessions for the different frameworks, but
sessions will be organized thematically. We especially encourage papers that are
accessible and relevant to members of both communities.

The programme will include two special thematic workshops: one on ``Grammatical Functions
and their Representation'' at the beginning of the conference, the other on ``Development
and Computational Processing of Linguistically Motivated Grammars'' at the end of the
conference. If you intend to submit to one of the workshops, please indicate this on the
submission form. Further details about these workshops will be published in due course.


The main conference sessions will involve 45-minute talks (30 min + 15 min discussion),
and poster 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original, unpublished work.


Deadline for abstracts:  15 February 2016, 23:59 GMT
Notification of acceptance:  30 March 2016
Conference:  25 July -29 July 2016


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, plus up to two
pages for references and figures, in 10pt or larger type and should include a title. Omit
name and affiliation (including 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 address
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 high
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 preferences
concerning the mode of presentation of their submissions.

All abstracts will be reviewed anonymously by at least three referees, representing both
frameworks. 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/HPSG/ and
http://web.stanford.edu/group/cslipublications/cslipublications/LFG/ for recent
proceedings of HPSG and LFG conferences.


The conference will be preceded by an excursion on 24 July.  Details will be announced
nearer the time.


If you have queries about abstract submission or have problems using the EasyChair
submission system, please contact the Program Committee.
