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
- 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
Previous conferences in this series have welcomed papers from a wide
variety of frameworks.
Submissions will be reviewed anonymously by at least three reviewers.
Accepted papers will be published after the conference as volume number
5591 in the Springer series Lecture Notes in Computer Science (under
the FoLLI LNAI subline).
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submissions of original, unpublished 30-minute papers (including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. Note that accepted papers can only be presented in one
of the venues.
Authors are invited to submit anonymous papers presenting original and
unpublished research. Papers should not exceed 16 pages and
should be formatted according to the usual LNCS article style.
