17-19 August 2020, KU Leuven (Belgium)
HPSG is a well-developed, precisely formalized theory of grammar whose architecture is based on the notion of constraint satisfaction. Linguistic objects are modeled as feature structures organized via a system of types and constraint inheritance, drawing key insights from research in object-oriented paradigms. The HPSG community values explicit, large-scale grammar development and explores psycholinguistic models, as well as the development of efficient computational systems for processing natural languages using HPSG grammars.
The 27th International Conference on Head-driven Phrase Structure Grammar will be held on August 17 – 19, 2020 at the University of Leuven, Belgium. Abstracts are invited that address linguistic, foundational, or computational issues relating to or in the spirit of the framework of Head-driven Phrase Structure Grammar and/or Sign-Based Construction Grammar.
The HPSG 2020 conference will consist of a two-day main conference, preceded by a half-day workshop on Treebanking.
Invited Speakers for the main conference:
Laura Michaelis, University of Colorado Boulder
Gert Webelhuth, Goethe University Frankfurt
Keynote speaker for the workshop on Treebanking:
Gosse Bouma, University of Groningen
The HPSG 2020 Conference will take place at the Faculty of Arts (Erasmushuis) at the KU Leuven, Belgium.

Submission Deadline: February 29th, 2020
The 27th International Conference on Head-driven Phrase Structure Grammar will be held on August 17th – 19th, 2020 at the University of Leuven, Belgium. Abstracts are invited that address linguistic, foundational, or computational issues relating to or in the spirit of the framework of Head-driven Phrase Structure Grammar and/or Sign-Based Construction Grammar.
Two types of submissions are admitted both for the main conference and the workshop:
* Long papers (4-page abstract + 1 page data, figures & references; 30 minute presentation + 10 minute discussion)
* Short papers (2-page abstract + 1 page data, figures & references; 15 minute presentation + 5 minute discussion)
Please note that abstracts submitted for the ”long paper” track can be accepted as ”short papers” (and vice versa). Only ”long papers” will appear in the proceedings.
All abstracts (written in English) should be submitted in PDF format via: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=hpsg-27-leuven-2020 .
All abstracts will be reviewed anonymously by at least two reviewers. The submissions should not include the authors’ names, and authors are asked to avoid self-references. Please direct any questions to the Program Committee Chair (anke.hollerphil.uni-goettingen.de).
A call for contributions to the proceedings will be issued after the Conference. Proceedings of previous conferences are available at: http://csli-publications.stanford.edu/HPSG/ .
Abstract submission deadline: February 29th, 2020 (12 midnight GMT)
