     7th International Conference on
   Head-driven Phrase Structure Grammar
    Berkeley, California

      22-23 July 2000

The 7th International Conference on Head-driven Phrase Structure
Grammar will be held on Saturday and Sunday, July 22-23, 2000, as part
of the Berkeley Formal Grammar Conference 2000 at the University of
California, Berkeley, The event will consist of LFG2000 (July 19-20),
HPSG-2000 (July 22-23), and a common day of workshops on July 21,
entitled "Lexical and Constructional Explanations in Constraint-Based
Grammar", offering a valuable opportunity for interaction among
researchers of these two frameworks.

Invited speakers for HPSG-2000 are John Hawkins (University of
Southern California), and Donna Gerdts and Thomas Hukari (Simon Fraser
University and the University of Victoria).  The conference will also
feature an invited tutorial on Norwegian, identifying challenges that
the grammar poses for HPSG, presented by Lars Johnsen and Torbjorn
Nordgard (University of Bergen & the Norwegian University of Science
and Technology).
