the sixth conferene on Formal Grammar and the seventh on the
Mathematics of Language. The joint meeting will be held just prior
to the European Summer School in Logic, Language, and Information.


AIMS and SCOPE

FGMOL'01 provides 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

SPECIAL SESSION on MODEL-THEORETIC SYNTAX

There will be a special session of invited papers on model-theoretic
syntax. The speakers will be Geoffrey K. Pullum (keynote),
Patrick Blackburn, James Rogers, and Uwe Moennich.

ADDITIONAL INVITED SPEAKERS to be announced.
