In August 1998, the Tenth European Summer School in Logic, Language and
Information (ESSLLI X) will be held in Saabr\"{u}cken, Germany, August
17-28. The ESSLLI Summer Schools have become a forum for work on formal
grammar, encompassing the overlapping interests of work in formal
linguistics, computational linguistics, and the role of logic and grammar
formalisms. The Joint Conference on Formal Grammar, Head-Driven Phrase
Structure Grammar, and Categorial Grammar (FHCG-98), combining the 4th
conference on Formal Grammar and the 5th conference on Head-Driven Phrase
Structure Grammar, will be held the weekend preceding the Summer School,
August 14-16. The conference will include a Special Session on Information
Packages with contributed papers and invited lectures by

	o Enric Vallduvi (Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona)
	o Elisabet Engdahl (Gothenborg University)

It will also contain a Symposium on Unbounded Dependencies, with
presentations by

	o Anne Abeille (University of Paris)
	o Michael Moortgat (Utrecht University)
	o Ivan Sag (Stanford University)
	o Ed Stabler (UCLA)
	o Annie Zaenen (Xerox Research Centre Europe)

Themes of interest include formal and computational syntax, semantics, and
pragmatics; head-driven phrase structure grammar and categorial grammar;
model-theoretic and proof-theoretic methods in linguistics;
constraint-based and resource-sensitive approaches to grammar; and
foundational, methodological and architectural issues in grammar.

On the following pages, a detailed program of the conference is provided.
Registration for the conference should be done via the ESSLLI X secretariat.
The conference fee of DM 80 includes a copy of the conference proceedings.
Online registration for FHCG-98 can be arranged at

Accommodation can be arranged via ESSLLI X.
