FGVienna: The 8th conference on Formal Grammar Collocated with the European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information Vienna, Austria, 16-17 August 2003 http://cs.haifa.ac.il/&# 37;7Eshuly/fg03/ Second Call for Papers Background FGVienna is the 8th conference on Formal Grammar held in conjunction with the European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information, which takes place in 2003 in Vienna. Previous meetings were held in Barcelona (1995), Prague (1996), Aix-en-Provence (1997), Saarbruecken (1998), Utrecht (1999, Helsinki (2001) and Trento (2002). Aims and Scope FGVienna provides a forum for the presentation of new and original research on formal grammar, with particular regard to the application of formal methods to natural language analysis. 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; * 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. Previous conferences in this series have welcomed papers from a wide variety of frameworks. Invited Speakers We are pleased to announce two invited talks by distinguished researchers: * Walter Daelemans, University of Antwerp and Tilburg University * Geoffrey K. Pullum, University of California, Santa Cruz Submission Details We invite *e-mail* submissions of 30-minute papers (including questions, comments, and discussion). A submission should consist of two parts: 1. an information sheet (in plain text), containing: * title, * the name of the author(s), * affiliation(s), * e-mail and postal address(es). 2. an *anonymous* paper, consisting of a description of not more than 8 pages, including figures and references. Papers should be sent as email attachments in plain text (ASCII), PostScript or PDF. Preparation of the manuscript in LaTeX is highly recommended. Submissions should be sent to shuly_(on)_cs.haifa.ac.il (Shuly Wintner).
