    Workshop on Ellipsis and Formal Grammar (co-located with HPSG 2012)


    Call for papers


    Abstracts are solicited for presentations which address linguistic, foundational, or computational issues relating to ellipsis
    phenomena and its interactions  with formal syntax and semantics.
    The aim of the workshop is to further current research on ellipsis within the HPSG community, and to encourage
    cross-framework discussion of ellipsis and its interface to syntax and semantics. Thus, we strongly encourage researchers from outside the HPSG framework to submit.

    Invited Speaker

    Mark Steedman (University of Edinburgh)

    Workshop Format
    There will be two sessions: a main session, with 30 minute presentations (plus 10 min discussion), 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.
    Related Events
    The workshop on ellipsis is part of this year's HPSG conference, which will take place in Daejon, South Korea, on 18undefined21, July 2011.
