Invited speakers: TBA

A workshop on "Revisiting Lexical Integrity" is planned for 25 July. More
information on the topic
and abstract submission can be found at

Conference mode:
We are currently planning a physical conference and hope that speakers will
be able to attend in
person. A synchronous, online participation option will be available.

LFG23 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

LFG23 is sponsored by the Center for Language Sciences at the University of


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unpublished work.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 2023, 23:59 UTC-12 (midnight anywhere
on Earth)
Notification of acceptance: 31 March 2023
Conference: 21 July - 25 July 2023


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.

For dissertation session submissions, please add "Dissertation" to the
title of your abstract.

Please submit your abstract in .pdf format (or a plain text file).

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 University of Konstanz/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 day of pre-conference activities on 21 July. The ParGram
Project Meeting will be
held in the morning and there will be a social activity in the afternoon.


If you have queries about abstract submission or have problems submitting
your paper, please contact
the Program Committee.
