Background

FGVienna is the 8th conference on Formal Grammar held in conjunction
with the European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information
(http://www.logic.at/esslli03/), which takes place in 2003 in Vienna.
Previous meetings were held in Barcelona (1995), Prague (1996),
Aix-en-Provence (1997), Saarbruecken (1998), Utrecht (1999, Helsinki
(2001) and Trento (2002).

Aims and Scope

FGVienna provides a forum for the presentation of new and original
research on formal grammar, with particular regard to the application of
formal methods to natural language analysis.
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;
 * 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.
Previous conferences in this series have welcomed papers from a wide
variety of frameworks.
