CALL FOR PAPERS

FG-2011:
The 16th Conference on Formal Grammar
Ljubljana, Slovenia, August 6-7, 2011
http://www.cs.st-andrews.ac.uk/~mjn/FG11/

Collocated with the European Summer School
in Logic, Language and Information


Background

FG-2011 is the 16th conference on Formal Grammar, to be held in conjunction
with the European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information, which
takes place in 2011 in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

Previous Formal Grammar meetings were held in Barcelona (1995), Prague (1996),
Aix-en-Provence (1997), Saarbruecken (1998), Utrecht (1999), Helsinki (2001),
Trento (2002), Vienna (2003), Nancy (2004), Edinburgh (2005), Malaga (2006),
Dublin (2007), Hamburg (2008), Bordeaux (2009) and Copenhagen (2010).


Aims and Scope

FG provides a forum for the presentation of new and original research on
formal grammar, mathematical linguistics and the application of formal and
mathematical methods to the study of natural language. Themes of interest
include, but are not limited to,

* formal and computational phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics
and pragmatics;
* model-theoretic and proof-theoretic methods in linguistics;
* logical aspects of linguistic structure;
* constraint-based and resource-sensitive approaches to grammar;
* learnability of formal grammar;
* integration of stochastic and symbolic models of grammar;
* foundational, methodological and architectural issues in grammar;
* mathematical foundations of statistical approaches to linguistic
analysis.

Previous conferences in this series have welcomed papers from a wide variety
of frameworks.


Submission Details

We invite **electronic** submissions of original, 16-page papers (including
references and possible technical appendices). Authors are encouraged to use
the Springer-Verlag LNCS style:
