           Collocated with the European Summer School

 Background

 FG-2009 is the 14th conference on Formal Grammar, to be held in
 conjunction with the European Summer School in Logic, Language and
 Information, which takes place in 2009 in Bordeaux, France.

 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), Dublin (2007) and Hamburg (2008).


 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
 analysis.

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


 Proceedings

 Submissions will be reviewed anonymously by at least three
 reviewers. We plan to publish accepted papers after the conference in
 the LNCS series of Springer.


 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 We invite **electronic** submissions of original, unpublished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. Note that
 accepted papers can only be presented in one of the venues. For more
 guidelines for submissions see the conference web page.

 The submission deadline is **April 26th,** 2009. Papers must be
 submitted electronically at
