HPSG 2012, CNU, Korea::::The 19th International Conference on Head-Driven Phrase Structure Grammar
Call for Papers > for Ellipsis Workshop  

Workshop on Ellipsis and Formal Grammar
(co-located with HPSG 2012)

Call for papers
Abstracts are solicited for presentations which address linguistic, foundational, or computational issues relating to ellipsis phenomena and its interactions with formal syntax and semantics.
The aim of the workshop is to further current research on ellipsis within the HPSG community, and to encourage cross-framework discussion of ellipsis and its interface to syntax and semantics. Thus, we strongly encourage researchers from outside the HPSG framework to submit.

Invited Speakers
Mark Steedman (University of Edinburgh)

Workshop Format
There will be two sessions: a main session, with 30 minute presentations (plus 10 min discussion), and a poster session. The poster session is intended as a means of encouraging the presentation of work that is not yet fully developed.

Prospective speakers may submit either a 5 page abstract for the main session, or a 2 page abstract for the poster session. Abstracts submitted initially for the main session may be accepted, at the discretion of the program committee, for presentation in the poster session instead.

Related Events
