Collocated with the
European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information
Nancy, France, 7-8 August 2004
http://cs.haifa.ac.il/~shuly/fg04/

Background

FGNancy is the 9th conference on Formal Grammar held in conjunction
with the European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information,
which takes place in 2004 in Nancy. Previous meetings were held in
Barcelona (1995), Prague (1996), Aix-en-Provence (1997), Saarbruecken
(1998), Utrecht (1999), Helsinki (2001), Trento (2002) andVienna
(2003).

Aims and Scope

FGNancy 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.

Invited Speakers
Two invited talks will be delivered by distinguished researchers. 
Speakers and titles will be published in due course.
