The Association for the Mathematics of Language is pleased to announce that its sixth meeting (MOL6) will be held in July, 1999. The biennial MOL meetings are a workshop-style forum for presenting work relating to mathematical linguistics.


Submissions were invited from all areas of study that deal with the mathematical properties of natural language. These areas include, but are not limited to, mathematical models of phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics and pragmatics; mathematical properties of linguistic frameworks/theories and models of natural language processing and generation; mathematical models of language acquisition and change; parsing theory; and statistical and quantitative models of language.
