FG-2012 is the 17th conference on Formal Grammar, to be held in conjunction with the European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information, which takes place in 2012 in Opole, Poland.
Previous Formal Grammar meetings were held in Barcelona (1995), Prague (1996), Aix-en-Provence (1997), Saarbruecken (1998), Utrecht (1999), Helsinki (2001), Trento (2002), Vienna (2003), Nancy (2004), Edinburgh (2005), Malaga (2006), Dublin (2007), Hamburg (2008), Bordeaux (2009), Copenhagen (2010) and Ljubljana (2011).
FG provides a forum for the presentation of new and original research on formal grammar, mathematical linguistics and the application of formal and mathematical methods to the study of natural language. 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
- Logical aspects of linguistic structure
- 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 and linguistics
- Mathematical foundations of statistical approaches to linguistic analysis
Previous conferences in this series have welcomed papers from a wide variety of frameworks.
