FG-2006: The 11th conference on Formal Grammar Collocated with
the European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information
Malaga, Spain, July 29-30, 2006 http://www.formalgrammar.tk/
Call for Papers
FG-2006 is the 11th conference on Formal Grammar, to be held in
conjunction with the European Summer School in Logic, Language
and Information, which takes place in 2006 in Malaga, Spain.
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) and Edinburgh (2005).
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
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.
We invite electronic submissions of original, unpublished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.
Papers, written in English, should be anonymous and refrain from
self-reference. They should be no longer than 12 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, is highly
recommended. Revised versions will be required to be in LaTeX.
The format of submissions is PDF.
The submission deadline is April 1st, 2006. Papers must be
submitted electronically, at http://www.easychair.org/FG2006/
Submissions will be blindly reviewed by at least three reviewers.
Accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings,
which will be distributed on a CD at the conference. No paper
proceedings will be available at the conference, but a book of
(short) abstracts will be printed and distributed to
participants. Full, revised versions of accepted papers will be
published after the conference as CSLI Publications Online
Depending on the quality of the papers, we will consider
publishing a select subset of them in a special issue of Research
on Language and Computation.
Registration and accommodation
On-line registration forms for the conference and for conference
housing will be available later. Registration fees include
participation at the conference, one CD with the Proceedings,
coffee breaks and lunch on the two days of the conference. The
fee for pre-registration is Euro 50 and for on-site registration
