                               Call for Papers


FG-MOL 2005 is the 10th conference on Formal Grammar and the 9th
Meeting on the Mathematics of Language, to be held in conjunction with
the European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information, which
takes place in 2005 in Edinburgh.

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) and Nancy (2004).

MoL meetings are organized biennially by the Association for
Mathematics of Language, which is a Special Interest Group of the
Association for Computational Linguistics. This is the second time the
two events are held in tandem, following the success of FG-MOL 2001.

Aims and Scope

FG-MOL 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
Themes of interest include, but are not limited to,
  o  formal and computational phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics and pragmatics;
  o  model-theoretic and proof-theoretic methods in linguistics;
  o  logical aspects of linguistic structure;
  o  constraint-based and resource-sensitive approaches to grammar;
  o  learnability of formal grammar;
  o  integration of stochastic and symbolic models of grammar;
  o  foundational, methodological and architectural issues in grammar;
  o  mathematical foundations of statistical approaches to linguistic analysis.
Previous conferences in this series have welcomed papers from a wide variety of frameworks.

Submission Details

We invite electronic submissions of original, unpublished 30-minute
papers (including questions, comments, and discussion). Papers must be
submitted using a dedicated web-based form by  April 1, 2005. Papers
should be anonymous and refrain from  self-reference. They should be no

English. Submissions should be prepared in plain text (ASCII) or PDF.
Preparation of the manuscript in LaTeX, using the available style
files, is highly recommended. Revised versions will be required to be
in LaTeX, but assistance in translating to LaTeX form will be


Accepted abstracts will be included in the conference proceedings, to
be distributed at the conference. Full, revised versions will be
published after the conference as CSLI Publications Online Proceedings.
Depending on the quality of the papers, we will consider publishing a
selected number of them in a special issue of Research on Language and

Social Program
