Conferences & workshops

The grammar learning community, also known as the International Community about Grammatical Inference, is organizing a conference every two years since the early 90’s: the International Conference/Colloquium on Grammatical Inference (ICGI). This is the major forum for presentation and discussion of original research papers on all aspects of grammar learning: it is the place to present works on learning formal grammars, finite state machines, context-free grammars, Markov models, or any models related to language theory, stochastic or not. Both theoretical works and experimental analyses are presented at this event.

An important number of workshops has also been regularly organized by the community through the years.
