The 19th Conference on Formal Grammar
August 16–17, 2014
University of Tübingen, Germany
The 19th Conference on Formal Grammar will be held from August 16th to August 17th, 2014, in conjunction with the 26th European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information (ESSLLI 2014) in Tübingen, Germany.
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), Edinburgh (2005), Malaga (2006), Dublin (2007), Hamburg (2008), Bordeaux (2009), Copenhagen (2010), Ljubljana (2011), Opole (2012), and Düsseldorf (2013).
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 and pragmatics
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 and linguistics
Mathematical foundations of statistical approaches to linguistic analysis
Previous conferences in this series have welcomed papers from a wide variety of frameworks.
Submission Details
We invite submissions of original, 16-page papers (including references and possible technical appendices). Authors are strongly encouraged to use the Springer LNCS style.
The (extended) submission deadline is
March 2, 2014
. Papers must be submitted electronically via EasyChair.
Papers should report original work which was not presented in other conferences. However, simultaneous submission is allowed, provided that the authors indicate other conferences to which the work was submitted in a footnote. Note that accepted papers can only be presented in one of the venues.
Submissions will be reviewed anonymously by at least three reviewers. Accepted papers will be published as a volume in the Springer LNCS series, under the FoLLI subline, either separately or jointly with the papers from FG-2015, depending on the number of accepted papers.
