CALL FOR PAPERS

FG-2008:
The 13th Conference on Formal Grammar
Hamburg, Germany, August 9-10, 2008
http://www.sfb441.uni-tuebingen.de/fg08/

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


Background

FG-2008 is the 13th conference on Formal Grammar, to be held in
conjunction with the European Summer School in Logic, Language and
Information, which takes place in 2008 in Hamburg, Germany.

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) and Dublin (2007).


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,

o formal and computational phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics
and pragmatics;
o model-theoretic and proof-theoretic methods in linguistics;
o logical aspects of linguistic structure;
o constraint-based and resource-sensitive approaches to grammar;
o learnability of formal grammar;
o integration of stochastic and symbolic models of grammar;
o foundational, methodological and architectural issues in grammar;
o 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We invite **electronic** submissions of original, unpublished 30-minute
papers (including questions, comments, and discussion). Papers should
report original work which was not presented in other conferences.
However, simultaneous submission is allowed, provided that the authors
indicate other conference to which the work was submitted on the paper
submission form. Of course, accepted papers can only be presented in
one of the venues.

self-reference. They should be no longer than 18 A4 pages, with wide
margins so that the printed area is not larger than 11x18 cm., single
column, point size 11 or 12.
Preparation of the manuscript in LaTeX, using the available style
files at http://www.sfb441.uni-tuebingen.de/fg08/FG2008.tar.gz, is
highly recommended. Revised versions will be required to be in
LaTeX. The format of submissions is PDF.
