  Second International Conference on Dependency Linguistics
                       DepLing 2013

                  Second Call for Papers

DepLing 2013 will be held at the Faculty of Mathematics
and Physics, Charles University in Prague, Czech Republic
on August 27-30, 2013.
The conference is organized by the Institute of Formal
and Applied Linguistics.

DepLing 2013 is the second conference in the DepLing series
(the first was held in Barcelona, Spain in 2011).
The series responds to the growing need for linguistic
meetings dedicated to syntactic, semantic and lexicographic
approaches that are centered around dependency as a central

                      Important Dates

     Submission deadline: April 15, 2013
     Notification of acceptance: May 31, 2013
     Camera-ready copy of papers due: June 17, 2013
     Depling Conference: August 27-31, 2013

                  Proceedings Publication

In addition to the electronic version, there will be a hard
copy version of the Proceedings published by the MATFYZPRESS
(with the ISBN) available to the conference participants
at the registration. The papers accepted for the conference
will be indexed by the ACL Anthology.


Topics include, but are not limited to:

- The use of dependency trees in syntactic analysis,
description, formalization, parsing, generation, and corpus
annotation of written and spoken texts.
- The use of semantic valency-based predicate and actancy
graph structures and their link to classical logic.
- The elaboration of formal dictionaries for dependency-based
syntax and semantics, including descriptions of collocations
and paradigmatic relations.
- Links to morphology and linearization of dependency
structures, using for example topological field theories
- Dependency-like structures beyond the sentence as annotation
scheme for discourse phenomena.
- The description and formalization of semantic and pragmatic
phenomena related to information structure.
- History, epistemology, and psycholinguistic relevance
of dependency grammar, including its relation to generative
approaches to language

We are also interested in work on issues such as:

- What are the differences and similarities between theta
roles, valencies, f-structures, TAG derivation trees,
(subcategorization) frames, semantic role labelling, etc?
- Which corpus annotations using head-daughter relations
on words are formally and linguistically equivalent,
which are not?
- How to describe syntax-semantic interfaces between
dependency structures?

                Papers format and submission

The deadline for the submissions is April 15, 2013.
The submissions will be electronic in PDF format through
the DepLing2013 EasyChair.

Papers may consist of up to 10 pages of content (including
references and figures), in the ACL two-column format.
Please see the instructions at:

Reviewing of papers will be double-blind.
