Call for papers

Timetable

Deadline for abstracts:  15 February 2019, 23:59 GMT
Notification of acceptance:  29 March 2019
Conference:  8 July - 10 July 2019

Abstracts should be submitted using the online submission system at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=lfg19

Submissions: Talks and Posters

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 Presentations should describe original, unpublished work.

Dissertation Session

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). 

Submission Specifications

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.

Please submit your abstract in .pdf format (or a plain text file). If you have any trouble converting your file into .pdf please contact the Program Committee at the address below. (On the Easychair submission system, if you upload your abstract as a .pdf file, please simply type 'abstract attached' in the abstract box.)  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 submissions.

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.
