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.
