The 18th Conference on Formal Grammar
Duesseldorf, Germany, August 10-11 2013

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


FG-2013 is the 18th conference on Formal Grammar, to be held in conjunction with the European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information, which takes place in 2013 in Duesseldorf, 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), Dublin (2007), Hamburg (2008), Bordeaux (2009), Copenhagen (2010), Ljubljana (2011) and Opole (2012).

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 and linguistics;
* 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:
