Report for SIGMOL, Mathematics of Language, June, 2004. Jim Rogers MOL 8 was held in conjunction with the 2nd North American Summer School in Logic, Language and Information at Indiana University, Bloomington, Indiana June 20-22, 2003. There were 13 contributed papers, covering a broad range of areas of mathematical linguistics, invited talks by Aravind Joshi, Ed Keenan and Ed Stabler and six additional talks in the context of two symposia: one on Language and Game Theory and one on Statistical and Symbolic Aspects of Natural Language Learnability. A collection of extended versions of a selection of the papers presented at the meeting will appear this Fall as a special issue of the Journal of Logic Language and Information. We are currently in the process of taking nominations for the position of Vice President/President-Elect and are in the early planning stages for MOL9. Proposals, so far, include U. Toronto (likely sometime next Spring), a joint meeting with the Formal Grammars conference at the 2005 ESSLLI in Edinburgh or a joint meeting with Logical Aspects of Computational Linguistics next Spring in Bordeaux.
