			FORMAL GRAMMAR CONFERENCE

 		 August 7-8, 1999,
		 Utrecht, The Netherlands


			 SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS

FG99 is the 5th conference on Formal Grammar held in conjunction with
the European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information, which
takes place in 1999 in Utrecht. Previous meetings were held in
Barcelona (1995), Prague (1996), Aix-en-Provence (1997), and as part
of the Joint Conference on Formal Grammar, Head-Driven Phrase
Structure Grammar, and Categorial Grammar (FHCG98) held in
Saarbruecken last August.


AIMS and SCOPE

FG99 provides a forum for the presentation of new and original
research on formal grammar, 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.

Previous conferences in this series have welcomed papers from
a wide variety of frameworks.

SPECIAL SESSIONS and INVITED SPEAKERS. There will be a	SYMPOSIUM on 

	Grammatical Resources and Grammatical Inference
		
		 David Dowty (Ohio State)
		 Polly Jacobson (Brown)
		 Gerhard Jaeger (Berlin)
		 Reinhard Muskens (Tilburg)
		 Mark Steedman (Edinburgh)
	commentator: Johan van Benthem (Amsterdam) [tentative]

SUBMISSION DETAILS

We invite E-MAIL submissions of abstracts for 30-minute papers
(including questions, comments, and discussion).

A submission should consist of two parts: 

- an information sheet (in ascii), containing the name of the author(s), 
 affiliation(s), e-mail and postal address(es) and a title; 

- an abstract, consisting of a description of not more than 5 pages 
 (including figures and references). Abstracts may be either in plain
 ASCII or in (unix-compatible encoded) postscript, PDF, or DVI. 


Abstracts can be sent to

PLEASE NOTE: 
The submission deadline has been extended to February 22, 1999.

 SIXTH MEETING ON THE MATHEMATICS OF LANGUAGE
 July 23-25, 1999
 University of Central Florida
 Orlando, Florida, USA
 +=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+==+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=++=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+

The Association for the Mathematics of Language is pleased to announce
that its sixth meeting (MOL6) will be held in July, 1999. The
biennial MOL meetings are a workshop-style forum for presenting work
relating to mathematical linguistics.

SUBMISSIONS
Submissions are invited from all areas of study that deal with the
mathematical properties of natural language. These areas include, but
are not limited to, mathematical models of phonology, morphology,
syntax, semantics and pragmatics; mathematical properties of
linguistic frameworks/theories and models of natural language
processing and generation; mathematical models of language acquisition
and change; parsing theory; and statistical and quantitative models of
language.

Submissions should give enough motivation to attract the interest of
the audience and enough details to attract people who follow the area
of the paper.


SUBMISSION FORMAT
Submissions should be no longer than 5000 words in length (about 10
pages, 11pt, excluding references). Papers must include an abstract
(200 words. max).

All contributions to MOL6 are to be made electronically as an
uncompressed mime-encoded postscript attachment. Please send your
submission to mol-submitcis.upenn.edu.

IMPORTANT DATES
 Deadline for submissions:		February 22, 1999 (Extended)
 Notification of acceptance:		April 15, 1999
 Deadline for final drafts:		June 1, 1999
