Call for Papers -- FGNancy: The 9th conference on Formal Grammar
Collocated with the
European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information
Nancy, France, 7-8 August 2004
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
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
• 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.
Two invited talks will be delivered by distinguished researchers.
Speakers and titles will be published in due course.
We invite e-mail submissions of original, unpublished 30-minute papers
(including questions, comments, and discussion). A submission should
consist of two parts:
1. an information sheet (in plain text), containing:
◦ the name of the author(s),
◦ one e-mail address for the corresponding author,
◦ if the same paper is under review for some other conference, the
name of that conference.
2. an anonymous abstract, consisting of a description of not more
than 8 pages, including figures and references. Abstracts should be
sent as email attachments in plain text (ASCII), PostScript or PDF.
Preparation of the manuscript in LaTeX is highly recommended.
Submissions should be sent to email@example.com (Shuly Wintner).
Accepted abstracts will be included in the conference proceedings, to
be distributed at the conference. Full, revised versions will also be
made available after the conference as CSLI Publications Online
A conference dinner is planned for Saturday, August 7th. More details
will be published in due course.
Registration and accommodation
Registration will be handled by the ESSLLI local organizers.
Registration fee is expected to be approximately Euro 10-20 for ESSLLI
participants, Euro 50-60 for others. Fees include one copy of the
Proceedings. Accommodation will be handled by the ESSLLI organizers
