             The 13th Conference on Formal Grammar
              Hamburg, Germany,  August 9-10, 2008

             Collocated with the European Summer School
                  in Logic, Language and Information


    FG-2008 is the 13th conference on Formal Grammar, to be held in
    conjunction with the European Summer School in Logic, Language and
    Information, which takes place in 2008 in Hamburg, Germany.

    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), Nancy (2004),
    Edinburgh (2005), Malaga (2006) and Dublin (2007).

    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,

    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

    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    We invite **electronic** submissions of original, unpublished 30-minute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 should
    report original work which was not presented in other conferences.
    However, simultaneous submission is allowed, provided that the authors
    indicate other conference to which the work was submitted on the paper
    submission form. Of course, accepted papers can only be presented in
    one of the venues.

    Papers, written in English, should be **anonymous** and refrain from
    self-reference. They should be no longer than 18 A4 pages, with wide
    margins so that the printed area is not larger than 11x18 cm., single
    column, point size 11 or 12.
    Preparation of the manuscript in LaTeX, using the available style
    files at http://www.sfb441.uni-tuebingen.de/fg08/FG2008.tar.gz, is
    highly recommended.  Revised versions will be required to be in
    LaTeX. The format of submissions is PDF.

    The submission deadline is **April 20th,** 2008. Papers must be submitted
    electronically at http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=fg2008


    Submissions will be blindly reviewed by at least three reviewers.
    Full, revised versions of accepted papers will be published before the
    conference as CSLI Publications Online Proceedings at
