The 8th International Conference on Head-driven Phrase Structure Grammar (2001) was held at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim. The conference featured three invited talks and 21 submitted papers, selected by the program committee. A special session was devoted to the treatment of semantics in HPSG, containing two of the invited talks and four of the submitted papers.
Frank Van Eynde was the program chair, and would like to thank the members of the program committee: Anne Abeillé, Doug Arnold, Emily Bender, Elisabet Engdahl, Erhard Hinrichs, Tom Hukari, Lars Hellan, Gertjan Van Noord, Carl Pollard, Adam Przepiorkowski, Shuichi Yatabe and Eun-Jung Yoo. In charge of local arrangements were Lars Hellan, Torbjørn Nordgård and Dorothee Beermann, and they would like to thank Eli Andenes and the whole helping group from the Linguistics Department for their logistic assistance, both during the conference and during the subsequent Scandinavian Summer school on Constraint-Based Grammar.
As has been customary in the past, the program chair and the local organizer(s) are responsible for making the work presented at the conference available to a wider audience. In order to do this as fast as possible we have chosen, as for the 2000 conference, an unrefereed electronic format.
The table of contents lists all the papers presented at the conference. For twenty of them you will find both an abstract (html) and a full version of the text (pdf). The remaining four were not submitted to the proceedings; for information on these papers, we suggest contacting the authors directly via the e-mail addresses provided as part of the table of contents.
