Amsterdam Colloquium 2019


The Amsterdam Colloquia aim to bring 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 2019 edition will be held at the University of Amsterdam on 18–20 December, 2019
(location: Amsterdam Science Park).

In addition to the general programme, the 22nd Amsterdam Colloquium will feature two workshops: one on Semantic Universals and one on Super Linguistics. The Colloquium will also include a poster session, and host one evening lecture jointly organized with the E.W. Beth Foundation.
