Conference e-mail (NOT for abstract submission): lfg-2020 'at' iln.uio.no

Abstract submission deadline: 15 February 2020, 23:59 UTC-12 (midnight
anywhere on Earth)

Abstracts should be submitted using the online submission system at

Invited speakers:

Workshop: 26 June 2020, "Word order, Prosody and Information Structure in
the Scandinavian
Languages", for information, including submission, see the website:

LFG20 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

LFG20 will be preceded by two other linguistics conferences being held in
Oslo: the 12th
International Conference of Nordic and General Linguistics, June 15-17, and
the 12th International
Austronesian and Papuan Languages and Linguistics Conference, June 18-20.


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unpublished work.


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.

Students should note that the main sessions are certainly also open to
student submissions. Students
who present papers in either session will receive a small subvention
towards their conference costs
from the International LFG Association (ILFGA).


Deadline for abstracts: 15 February 2020, 23:59 UTC-12 (midnight anywhere
on Earth)
Notification of acceptance: 27 March 2020
Conference: 23 June - 25 June 2020


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, including
figures and
references. Abstracts should be in 10pt or larger type, with margins of at
least 2cm on all four
sides, and should include a title. Omit name and affiliation (including in
PDF document properties),
and avoid obvious self-reference.

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

All abstracts will be reviewed anonymously by at least three referees.
Papers accepted to the
conference can be submitted to the refereed proceedings, and will be
published, subject to
acceptance, online by CSLI Publications. (Please note that papers submitted
to the proceedings are
no longer automatically accepted for publication in the proceedings.) See
http://web.stanford.edu/group/cslipublications/cslipublications/LFG/ for
recent proceedings.


There will be a pre-conference excursion on the 22nd June 2020. More
information will be provided at
a later date.


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