FG 2018
The 23rd Conference on Formal Grammar
Sofia, Bulgaria, August 11-12, 2018

Co-located with the European Summer School
in Logic, Language and Information



FG 2018 is the 23rd conference on Formal Grammar, to be held in
conjunction with the European Summer School in Logic, Language and
Information which, in 2018, will take place in Sofia, Bulgaria.

Previous Formal Grammar meetings were held in Barcelona (1995), Prague
(1996), Aix-en-Provence (1997), Saarbrücken (1998), Utrecht (1999),
Helsinki (2001), Trento (2002), Vienna (2003), Nancy (2004), Edinburgh

Tübingen (2014), Barcelona (2015), Bozen-Bolzano (2016),
and Toulouse (2017).


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

Previous conferences in this series have welcomed papers from a wide
variety of frameworks.


We invite *electronic* submissions of original, 16-page papers
(including references and possible technical appendices). Authors are
encouraged to use the Springer-Verlag LNCS style:

The submission deadline is *March 15, 2018*. Papers must be
*anonymous* and submitted electronically at EasyChair:

Papers should report original work which was not presented in other
conferences. However, simultaneous submission is allowed, provided
that the authors indicate other conferences to which the work was
submitted in a footnote. Note that accepted papers can only be
presented in one of the venues.

Submissions will be reviewed anonymously by at least three reviewers.
Accepted papers will be published as a volume in the Springer LNCS
series, under the FoLLI subline.
