** EXTENDED SUBMISSION DEADLINE: February 25, 2015 **


BACKGROUND

FG-2015 is the 20th conference on Formal Grammar, to be held in conjunction with the European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information, which takes place in 2015 in Barcelona, Spain.

Previous Formal Grammar meetings were held in Barcelona (1995), Prague (1996), Aix-en-Provence (1997), Saarbrücken (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), Opole (2012), Düsseldorf (2013) and Tübingen (2014).


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:
http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0

The (extended) submission deadline is **February 25, 2015**. Papers must be submitted electronically at EasyChair:
https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=fg2015.

Papers should report original work which was not presented in other conferences. However, simultaneous submission is allowed, provided that the authors indicate other conferences to which the work was submitted in a footnote. Note that accepted papers can only be presented in one of the venues.

Submissions will be reviewed anonymously by at least three reviewers. Accepted papers will be published as a volume in the Springer LNCS series, under the FoLLI subline, either separately or jointly with the papers from FG-2016, depending on the number of accepted papers.
