Amsterdam Colloquium 2015


The Amsterdam Colloquia aim at bringing together linguists, philosophers, logicians, cognitive scientists and computer scientists who share an interest in the formal study of the semantics and pragmatics of natural and formal languages.

The 2015 edition will be held at the University of Amsterdam on 16-18 December.

The 20th Amsterdam Colloquium will feature two workshops on Negation and on Reasoning in Natural Language; and one evening lecture, jointly organized with the E.W. Beth Foundation.

Directly preceding the Amsterdam Colloquium there will be two satellite workshops, one on questions in logic and semantics and one on questions in pragmatics.

Furthermore, there will be a special issue of the journal Topoi with selected contributions presented at the Colloquium, both in the main programme and in the workshops.
