Meeting Description:

Algorithmic and theoretical problems arising during syntactical
analysis

Categorial grammars, type grammars and pregroups are formal structures
for deciding whether a string of words is a grammatical sentence.
They assign one or more types to each word in the dictionary. One
solves the problem whether a sequence of words is a grammatical
sentence, by performing computations on the corresponding string(s) of
types. This makes it possible to characterise the syntactic
properties of natural languages entirely in terms of their lexical
types and prove general properties, independent of the actual language
fragment. These grammars are related to other mathematical approaches
like intuitionist, classical and compact bilinear logic, non-symmetric
*-autonomous categories, Montague semantics and Chomsky's minimalist
programme. Some of these methods have matured to highly efficient
tools for syntactical analysis.

Previous meetings were held in Tucson, Rome, Nancy, Nantes, Trento and
Ottawa. This symposium will cover new theoretical results and
applications to natural languages. This is a preliminary programme to
CG2004.
