*** CALL FOR PARTICIPATION *** *** PLEASE POST *** *apologies if you receive multiple copies* ---- FGMOL'01 FORMAL GRAMMAR / MATHEMATICS OF LANGUAGE CONFERENCE Friday morning (9.00) August 10--Sunday afternoon (17.50) August 12, 2001 Helsinki in conjunction with the European Summer School in Logic, Language, and Information (ESSLLI XIII) ************************************************************************* AIMS & SCOPE FGMOL'01 will provide a forum for the presentation of new and original research on formal grammar and mathematical aspects of language, especially with regard to the application of formal methods to natural language analysis. Themes of interest include, but are not limited to: * formal and computational syntax, semantics, pragmatics, and phonology; * model-theoretic and proof-theoretic methods in linguistics; * constraint-based and resource-sensitive approaches to grammar; * foundational, methodological and architectural issues in grammar; * mathematical properties of linguistic frameworks; * theories and models of natural language processing and generation; * parsing theory; * statistical and quantitative models of language. ************************************************************************ PRACTICAL INFORMATION Conference Description and Program: http://sfinx.let.uu.nl/users /fgmol01prog.pdf Registration and Accommodation via ESSLLI: http://www.helsinki.fi/esslli Registration fee: 50 euros. ************************************************************************ PROGRAM ----- INVITED LECTURES Friday, August 10, 14.00-15.00: Aravind Joshi (University of Pennsylvania) Some issues concerning strong generative capacity Saturday, August 11, 14.00-15.00: Jaakko Hintikka (Boston University) Negation in logic and in natural language ---- Sunday, August 12, 14.00-17.50: SYMPOSIUM Model-Theoretic Syntax Geoffrey Pullum (Santa Cruz) Formal grammar without formal languages: the surprisingly radical implications of model-theoretic syntax Patrick Blackburn (INRIA) Why model-theoretic syntax?
