FHCG-98 FHCG-98 FHCG-98 FHCG-98 FHCG-98 FHCG-98 FHCG-98 FHCG-98 FHCG-98 JOINT CONFERENCE ON FORMAL GRAMMAR, HEAD-DRIVEN PHRASE STRUCTURE GRAMMAR, AND CATEGORIAL GRAMMAR August 14-16, 1998, Saarbruecken, Germany SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS FHCG-98 combines the 4th conference on Formal Grammar and the 5th conference on Head-driven Phrase Structure Grammar. It precedes the 10th European Summer School in Logic, Language, and Information (ESSLLI X). AIMS and SCOPE FHCG-98 hopes to provide a platform for presentation of new and original research on formal grammar, head-driven phrase structure grammar, and categorial grammar. Themes of interest include, but are not limited to, * formal and computational syntax, semantics, and pragmatics; * head-driven phrase structure grammar and categorial grammar; * model-theoretic and proof-theoretic methods in linguistics; * constraint-based and resource-sensitive approaches to grammar; * foundational, methodological and architectural issues in grammar. SPECIAL EVENTS The conference features a symposium on unbounded dependencies as well as a special session on information packaging. SYMPOSIUM on Unbounded Dependencies: Empirical Problems and Formal Techniques Invited Speakers: Anne Abeille (Paris 7 University) Bob Carpenter (Bell Labs, Murray Hill) Michael Moortgat (Utrecht University) Ivan Sag (Stanford University) Ed Stabler (UCLA) Annie Zaenen (Xerox, Grenoble) The symposium provides a comparison of recent work on unbounded dependencies from various theoretical angles. Relevant empirical issues include, but are not limited to, parasitic gaps, relative clauses, pied-piping, ATB-phenomena, weak and strong islands, comparatives, and the semantics of wh-questions. There will be presentations focussing on recent work in HPSG, LFG, TAG, CG, and the Minimalist framework, followed by a panel discussion. SPECIAL SESSION on Information Packaging Invited Speakers: Elisabeth Engdahl (University of Gothenburg) Enric Vallduvi (Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona, t.b.c.) This session is concerned with formal approaches to information packaging---those linguistic strategies which allow information to be encoded in different ways, appropriate to different contexts, emphasizing the interpretive significance of basic information packaging distinctions and their grammatical realization within and across natural languages. The special session will consist of two invited lectures and contributed papers appropriate to its theme. SUBMISSION DETAILS We invite E-MAIL submissions of abstracts for 30-minute papers (including questions and comments). A submission should consist of two parts: - an information sheet (in ascii), containing the name of the author(s), affiliation(s), e-mail and postal address(es), a title, and an indication whether the paper is to be considered for the special session on information packaging; - an abstract, consisting of a description of not more than 5 pages (including figures and references). Abstracts may be either in plain ASCII or in (unix-compatible encoded) postscript, PDF, or DVI. Please avoid using binhex or MIME. Abstracts can be sent to fg@ufal.mff.cuni.cz (Geert-Jan M. Kruijff) (EXTENDED) ABSTRACT SUBMISSION DEADLINE March, 31, 1998 NOTIFICATION OF ACCEPTANCE May, 15, 1998 PROCEEDINGS A full version of the accepted paper will be included in the conference proceedings, to be distributed at the conference. Full papers are due July, 1, 1998. PUBLICATION Pending final approval by the publisher, a selected number of papers will be published as a volume of the recently started CSLI-series "Studies in Constraint-Based Lexicalism", with series editors Andreas Kathol, Jean-Pierre Koenig and Sam Mchombo. There will be a separate round of submission and reviewing for this volume after the conference.
