The 18th International Conference on Head-driven Phrase Structure Grammar (HPSG 2011)
Call for papers
Abstracts are solicited for presentations which address linguistic, foundational, or computational issues relating to the framework of Head-Driven Phrase Structure Grammar.
* Conference Format:
There will be two sessions: a main session, with 30 minute presentations, and a poster session. The poster session is intended as a means of encouraging the presentation of work that is not yet fully mature.
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.

The HPSG Conference will take place in at the University of Washington in Seattle, WA on 24-25 August 2011. It will be preceded by a day of tutorials on 22 August, and a workshop on Information Structure and Formal Grammar on 23 August. There will be a separate call for papers for the workshop.
The tutorials will be given by Nicholas Asher (Toulouse) and Johanna Nichols (UC Berkeley).
We will use an online submission system. All abstracts should be submitted via: http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=hpsg2011
