This page contains the abstracts of the papers to be presetned at the HPSG 2020 conference. We uploaded the videos for those authors who decided for a prerecorded session + Q&A.
The talks are listed consistently with the order in which they will be presented. The actual times of the talks and QA sessions can be found in the calendar-based schedule (which you can download and adjust to your time zone automatically, but which does not allow inserting video links!).
