HPSG Workshop in Paris, November 17-18.

The following text has been posted by Berthold Crysmann:

Following up on the HPSG workshop Gert Webelhuth organised in Frankfurt in May 2012, I am happy to announce that the Laboratoire de linguistique formelle (CNR & U Paris 7) is going to host the second such workshop this coming autumn at Paris-Diderot.

The aim of these workshops is to provide a platform for (informal) discussion of current work in HPSG: theoretical, formal, as well as computational. The workshop is understood to be complementary to the annual international conference: the scope is regional (European) rather than international, there will be no proceedings, no reviewing, no invited speakers, and no registration fee.

In order to make it bearable to organise these workshops regularly (in Paris, Frankfurt, or possibly elsewhere), the idea is to keep all organisation and administration to an absolute minimum.


  • We send out a call for participation in which we ask who is interested in giving a presentation at the next meeting (this is the one!).
  • We will create a schedule for the workshop, reserve a room, provide a projector, organise restaurant reservations, etc.
  • We will create a web page with the workshop schedule, hotel recommendations, and directions to the venue.

Participants must organise their own travel and hotel accommodation and must cover all their own expenses.

Here are the details for the upcoming Paris venue:

Location: Maison Chicago, 5 rue Thomas Mann, F-75013 Paris (M°/RER Bibliothèque François Mitterand)

Dates: Mon 17 – Tue 18 November 2014

Deadlines: If you want to present at the workshop, please let me know before 15 October, the earlier the better. I would like to advertise the programme at least three weeks before the workshop.

Looking forward to seeing you all in Paris.

Berthold (local organiser)
