The International Conference on Role and Reference Grammar 2017 (RRG2017) - General information and first call for abstracts

The biannual International Conference on Role and Reference Grammar (RRG) will take place on August 1-3, 2017, at the Komaba Campus of the University of Tokyo, Japan. We are pleased to host plenary lectures by Profs. Andrej Malchukov (Johannes Gutenberg U., Mainz), Heiko Narrog (Tohoku U.), and Mitsuaki Shimojo (SUNY Buffalo).

The 2017 Conference will deal with all aspects of functional linguistics. Papers dealing with further elaboration of RRG in areas like morphology, syntax, semantics, information structure, as well as language processing and language change are encouraged.

The Conference will have papers and a poster session. Each paper presentation will last twenty minutes, followed by another ten minutes for discussion. Abstracts must be received electronically by March 10, 2017 at <rrg2017(you-know-what)phiz.c.u-tokyo.ac.jp<http://phiz.c.u-tokyo.ac.jp/>>. They will be considered for presentation as a talk or as a poster; if an abstract is intended for consideration as a poster only, that should be indicated.  Abstracts should be no longer than two pages, including data and references, and must be submitted as PDF documents. The abstracts should be anonymous. Submissions are limited to one single-authored and one-co-authored abstract or two co-authored abstracts.  The email message must include the following information: author's name, affiliation, email address, and title of the abstract. Decisions on papers for presentation and posters will be sent out no later than May 1, 2017.  More details will be provided on the conference web page, to be installed in late January (http://phiz.c.u-tokyo.ac.jp/~rrg2017/index.html).
