Aims and Scope:

MOL (Mathematics of Language) is a biennial conference devoted to the mathematical study of languages and linguistics. Contributions to all areas of this field are welcome. The topics within the scope of the conference include, but are by no means limited to:

- Complexity and generative capacity of grammar formalisms
- Formal analysis of linguistic theories and frameworks
- Model-theoretic and proof-theoretic methods in linguistics
- Mathematical foundations of statistical and stochastic approaches to language analysis
- Formal models of language use and language change

Submission Guideline:

We invite submission of original, unpublished papers suitable for 30-minute presentations. Papers should report original work which has not been presented at other conferences with published proceedings. Simultaneous submission to other conferences is allowed, provided that the authors indicate which other conferences the paper is submitted to. A paper is accepted on the condition that it will not be presented at any other venues.

Papers should not exceed 18 pages, including references and appendices (if any), and should be prepared in LaTeX using the Springer LNCS class files available atftp://ftp.springer.de/pub/tex/latex/llncs/latex2e/llncs2e.zip.

Papers must be submitted electronically at http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=mol12.
Submissions will be reviewed anonymously by at least three reviewers.


The proceedings will be published by the time of the conference in the FoLLI LNAI subline of the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science.
