This volume contains the proceedings of the 6th International Conference on
Logical Aspects of Computational Linguistics 2011 (LACL 2011), held June 29-
July 1, 2011 in Montpellier, France. The LACL conferences aim at providing a
forum for the presentation and discussion of current research in all the formal
and logical aspects of computational linguistics.
The Program Committee selected 18 papers out of 31 submissions for presentation
at LACL 2011. The topics they cover include type-theoretical grammars,
dependency grammars, formal language theory, grammatical inference, minimalism,
generation, lexical and formal semantics, by authors from Argentina, France,
Germany, Japan, The Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, UK, and USA.
In addition to the contributed talks, two invited talks were delivered by
T. Fernando (Trinity College) and C. Gardent (LORIA/CNRS). The latter
was a joint event with Traitement Automatique des Langues Naturelles 2011
(TALN 2011), the international French-speaking conference on natural language
