    LFG22 welcomes work within the formal architecture of Lexical-Functional Grammar as well as
    typological, formal, and computational work within the 'spirit of LFG' as a lexicalist approach to
    language employing a parallel, constraint-based framework. The conference aims to promote
    interaction and collaboration among researchers interested in non-derivational approaches to
    grammar, where grammar is seen as the interaction of (perhaps violable) constraints from multiple
    levels of structuring, including those of syntactic categories, grammatical relations, semantics and


    The main conference sessions will involve 45-minute talks (30 min + 15 min discussion), and poster
    presentations. Contributions can focus on results from completed as well as ongoing research, with
    an emphasis on novel approaches, methods, ideas, and perspectives, whether descriptive, theoretical,
    formal or computational. Presentations should describe original, unpublished work.


    As in previous years, we are hoping to hold a special session that will give students the chance to
    present recent PhD dissertations (or other student research dissertations). The dissertations must
    be completed by the time of the conference, and they should be made publicly accessible (e.g., on
    the World Wide Web). The talks in this session should provide an overview of the main original
    points of the dissertation; the talks will be 20 minutes, followed by a 10-minute discussion period.

    Students should note that the main sessions are certainly also open to student submissions. Students
    who present papers in either session will receive a small subvention towards their conference costs
    from the International LFG Association (ILFGA).


    Deadline for abstracts: 15 February 2022, 23:59 UTC-12 (midnight anywhere on Earth)
    Notification of acceptance: 31 March 2022
    Conference: 12 July - 14 July 2022


    The language of the conference is English, and all abstracts must be written in English.

    All abstracts should be submitted using the online submission system. Submissions should be in the
    form of abstracts only. Abstracts can be up to three A4 pages, including figures and
    references. Abstracts should be in 10pt or larger type, with margins of at least 2cm on all four
    sides, and should include a title. Omit name and affiliation (including in PDF document properties),
    and avoid obvious self-reference.

    For dissertation session submissions, please add "Dissertation" to the title of your abstract.

    Please submit your abstract in .pdf format (or a plain text file).

    The number of submissions is not restricted. However, in the interests of high participation and
    broad representation, each author should be involved in a maximum of two oral papers and can only be
    a single author of one. There are no restrictions on poster presentations. Authors may want to keep
    this in mind when stating their preferences concerning the mode of presentation of their

    All abstracts will be reviewed anonymously by at least three referees. Papers accepted to the
    conference can be submitted to the refereed proceedings, and will be published, subject to
    acceptance, online by CSLI Publications. (Please note that papers submitted to the proceedings are
    no longer automatically accepted for publication in the proceedings.) See
    http://web.stanford.edu/group/cslipublications/cslipublications/LFG/ for recent proceedings.


    If you have queries about abstract submission or have problems using the EasyChair submission
    system, please contact the Program Committee.
