Call for Papers

The 25th International Conference on Head-Driven Phrase Structure Grammar
29 June - 1 July 2018
The Komaba Campus of the University of Tokyo, Japan
Submission Deadline: 1-Feb-2018

The HPSG 2018 conference will begin with a one-day workshop on the clause structure of Japanese and Korean, which will be followed by a 2-day main conference.

THE MAIN CONFERENCE (30 June - 1 July)
Invited speakers:
Makoto Kanazawa, National Institute of Informatics, Tokyo
Doug Arnold, University of Essex

Abstracts are solicited for presentations which address linguistic, foundational, or computational issues relating to or in the spirit of the framework of Head-Driven Phrase Structure Grammar.

Invited Speakers:
Daisuke Bekki, Ochanomizu University
Yusuke Kubota, University of Tsukuba

One aim of this workshop is to promote cross-framework discussion, and therefore we strongly encourage researchers from outside the HPSG framework to submit abstracts for this workshop.
Possible topics include, but are not limited to, whether predicates and suffixal morphemes following them, which together form prosodic constituents unambiguously, ever form morphosyntactic constituents as well, whether predicates are ever raised from their "base" positions, and whether each type of scrambling can be regarded as an instance of Move (or, in the HPSG parlance, SLASH-mediated long-distance dependency). There might appear to be something of a consensus regarding some of these issues within a given research community, but there is no discipline-wide consensus on these and related issues.

Prospective speakers for the two events must submit a 5-page abstract
(30 minute presentation, plus 10 minute discussion).
All abstracts should be submitted in PDF format via:
All abstracts will be reviewed anonymously by at least two reviewers.
They should not include the authors' names, and authors are asked to avoid self-references.

Please direct any questions to the Program Committee Chair: Frank Richter

Abstract submission deadline: 1 February 2018
Notification of acceptance: 15 March 2018
Conference: 29 June - 1 July 2018
