Seventeenth Amsterdam Colloquium

16–18 December, 2009

The Seventeenth Amsterdam Colloquium will be held December 16 – 18 2009 at the University of Amsterdam. The Amsterdam Colloquia aim at bringing together linguists, philosophers, logicians and computer scientists who share an interest in the formal study of the semantics and pragmatics of natural and formal languages. The spectrum of topics covered ranges from descriptive (syntactic and semantic analyses of all kinds of expressions) to theoretical (logical and computational properties of semantic theories, philosophical foundations, evolution and learning of language).
