AIMS AND SCOPE
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
+ 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
+ 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 9, 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.
