FG-2006: The 11th conference on Formal Grammar

Collocated with the European Summer School in Logic, Language and 

Malaga, Spain, July 29-30, 2006


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 to,

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.

Submission Details

We invite electronic submissions of original, unpublished 30-minute 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. A link to the on-line 
submission site will be published in March.


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 Proceedings.

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 

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 Euro 60.
