The joint meeting will be held just prior to the European Summer School in Logic, Language, and Information. \medskip {\it Aims And Scope} FGMOL'01 provides a forum for the presentation of new and original research on formal grammar and mathematical aspects of language, especially with regard to the application of formal methods to natural language analysis. Themes of interest include, but are not limited to, \begin{itemize} \setlength{\itemsep}{0pt}\setlength{\parskip}{0pt} \item formal and computational syntax, semantics, pragmatics, and phonology; \item model-theoretic and proof-theoretic methods in linguistics; \item constraint-based and resource-sensitive approaches to grammar; \item foundational, methodological and architectural issues in grammar. \item mathematical properties of linguistic frameworks \item theories and models of natural language processing and generation \item parsing theory \item statistical and quantitative models of language \end{itemize} \noindent We welcome papers from a wide variety of frameworks. \medskip {\it Invited Speakers} will be announced with the circulation of the second call for papers in early February. \medskip {\it Submission Details} We invite E-MAIL submissions of abstracts for 30-minute papers (including questions, comments, and discussion). A submission should consist of two parts: \begin{itemize} \setlength{\itemsep}{0pt}\setlength{\parskip}{0pt} \item an information sheet (in ascii), containing the name of the author(s), affiliation(s), e-mail and postal address(es) and a title; \item an abstract, consisting of a description of not more than 5 pages (including figures and references).
