The 13th Conference on Formal Grammar
Hamburg, Germany, August 9-10, 2008

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


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

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