Formal Language Theory was born in the middle of 20th century as a tool for modelling and investigating syntax of natural languages. After 1964, formal language theory developed as a separate branch with specific problems, techniques and results and with an internal self-motivated life. So, formal languages, which started being a tool to be applied to natural languages, became rapidly a theory that studied formal systems independently of possible linguistic applications. On the other hand, classical formal language theory, due to its abstract and formal properties, has been applied to a wide range of fields (besides initial linguistic motivation): economic modelling, developmental biology, cryptography, sociology... Non classical models of formal languages present the same abstractness that has facilitate the application of classical models to many issues, and, in addition, present, several advantageous features: natural inspiration, parallelism, distribution, cooperation, etc. Therefore, recently many researchers claim that application of non-classical models of formal languages can provide approaches to linguistics that can improve the description, analysis and processing of natural languages. In fact, the aim of this workshop is to discuss the possible applications of non-classical formal languages in linguistics.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers from different areas that have in common the use of formal language theory to approach different aspects of natural language.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

 

Mathematical Linguistics

 

Linguistic Applications of Formal Languages

 

Formal Analysis of Linguistic Theories and Frameworks

 

Model-Theoretic and Proof-Theoretic Methods in Linguistics

 

Probabilistic and Statistical Models of Language

 

Linguistic Applications of FSA

 

Logics and Language

Description      Aim of the Conference is to deal with the composition of the Avesta through its history covering it oral composition and transmission, the invention of the Avestan script, the constitution of the different types of manuscripts between the invention of the script and the first manuscripts, the relations between manuscripts and the stemmata of each type of manuscript, presentation of manuscripts not used by K. F. Geldner for his edition and generals about the written and oral transmission. It intends also to offer an overview of the different collections of manuscripts all over the world, their catalogues, state of preservation and accessibility. Actually, the Conference is organized in the frame of the Avestan Digital Archive (http://www.avesta-archive.com), a project that tries to solve the difficulties of researchers of the Avesta for having access to the manuscripts.

One of the main interests of the work with the Avestan manuscripts (although not the only one) is the edition of the Avestan texts transmitted. Therefore, we would like to address the question about the necessity of a new edition of the Avesta after the edition of K. F. Geldner. Accordingly, a deep analysis of Gedlner's method and edition is strongly needed. We hope also that the conference could provide an overview about the different Avestan texts that are being edited in the actuality and which are considered the main desiderata in this field.

Although the main focus of the conference is the transmission of the Avesta, we would like also to cover the transmission of other Zoroastrian texts, especially the Pahlavi books, since they share some of the problems of the Avesta transmission. It will provide also an overview of the different Pahlavi words that are going to edited in the actuality.

Each thematic block is going to be opened by an invited talk by one relevant specialist of the field. The invitation of the organizers have already be accepted by P.O. Skjaervø, J. Kellens, A. Hintze, F. Kotwal and U. Sims-Willams.

Meeting Description: Research in Natural Language Processing and Computational Linguistics began over 50 years ago. Research in the 3 disciplines of controlled languages, machine translation and data and sense mining has however been done separately for the most part, and it would be useful to combine these three disciplines. The primary objective of this conference is to bring together researchers and practitioners in controlled languages, machine translation and sense mining.

Frames provide a recursive device for representing knowledge about arbitrary objects and categories by means of attributes and their values. They offer a flexible way of representing concepts of different types in language, philosophy and sciences at different levels of detail and at different stages of development or processing. The interdisciplinary conference combines approaches from linguistics, computational linguistics, mathematics, cognitive psychology, neuroscience, philosophy, philosophy of science, and the history of science.
The conference will be held in English.

Meeting Description: Human natural languages are complex adaptive systems, for ever emergent and adapting to the needs of their communities. This insight is currently revolutionizing many branches of linguistics and this summer school feels the pulse of these exciting developments. It brings together typologists and historical linguists studying language variation and the emergence of new grammatical structure, evolutionary linguists modeling the origins and evolution of language, cognitive linguists investigating the cognitive foundations of language usage and learning, complex systems researchers using methods from statistical physics to study the semiotic dynamics of evolving languages, and computational linguists and AI researchers carrying out experiments to achieve open-ended communication with autonomous robots. The summer school gives an overview of the state of the art in these various subfields and compares results obtained from formal research, computer simulations and robotic experiments with empirical observations how humans invent and share language-like communication systems. It features a series of lectures by top researchers in the field, ateliers and master classes providing opportunities for hands-on experience in setting up and analyzing language game experiments, and poster sessions where participants present their own work.
