                            FORMAL GRAMMAR

                   Linguistic Aspects of Logical and
                 Computational Perspectives on Language


              August 9-10, 1997   Aix-en-Provence, France


                         FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS


In August 1997, the Ninth European Summer School in Logic, Language and
Information (ESSLLI'97) will be held in Aix-en-Provence, France, from
August 11 until 22. The ESSLLI Summer Schools have become a forum for work
on formal grammar, encompassing the overlapping interests of work in
formal linguistics, computational linguistics, and the role of logic and
grammar formalisms.  As at ESSLLI'96 last year in Prague, a conference on
Formal Grammar will be held the weekend before the summer school. The
conference will consist of presentations, as well as invited lectures by:

** Richard Oehrle (Arizona), on aspects of formal grammar

** Nicholas Asher (Austin), on formal pragmatics and computational issues
                            involving ambiguity

with a third invited lecture to be announced later.

Themes of interest include formal and computational syntax, semantics, and
pragmatics; model-theoretic and proof-theoretic methods in linguistics; and
foundational, methodological and architectural issues in grammar.

We invite E-MAIL submissions of abstracts for 30-minute papers (including
questions and comments) addressing these themes. Submissions integrating
*linguistic* considerations with *logical* perspectives on grammar
and (computational) *processing* are especially welcome (witness this
year's subtitle). Abstracts should be sent to

                        [log in to unmask]

An abstract should consist of two parts: a head part, containing the name
of the author(s), affiliation(s), e-mail address(es) and postal
address(es); and a body part, consisting of a description of not more than
800 words. The abstract MUST be in plain ASCII. Submissions will be
reviewed anonymously. The Programme Committee of FORMAL GRAMMAR is:

    Bob Carpenter     (CMU)           Shalom Lappin     (London)
    John Coleman      (Oxford)        Glyn Morrill      (Barcelona)
    Mary Dalrymple    (Xerox Parc)    Anton Nijholt     (Twente)
    Jack Hoekseman    (Groningen)     Gertjan van Noord (Groningen)
    Bob Kasper        (Ohio State)    Richard Oehrle    (Arizona)
    Andreas Kathol    (UC Berkeley)   Carl Pollard      (Ohio State)
    Manfred Krifka    (Austin)        Susan Steele      (Arizona)
    Geert-Jan Kruijff (Prague)

The DEADLINE for submissions is *May 7, 1997*. Notification of acceptance
will be in the first week of June. Final versions of full papers (12 pages
A4, LaTeX source) are to be received by June 30, 1997 for inclusion in the
proceedings to be distributed at the time of the conference.
