Message 2: Formal Pragmatics

From: Anton Benz <toni.benzgerman.hu-berlin.de>
Subject: Formal Pragmatics

Workshop on FORMAL PRAGMATICS - Second CALL FOR

Location: Humboldt University Berlin, Germany

Organised by
 Anton Benz (Berlin)

- -------------------------------------------


Although formal pragmatics has a long tradition, it has generally 
been in the shadow of formal semantics. But recently there has 
been a rapid progress in the field, as witness the development of 
new approaches such as:

 - Optimality theory (OT)
 - Game and decision Theory
 - Theory of distributed Systems
 - Logic-based approaches
 - Extensions of dynamic semantics
 - Extensions of classical pragmatic approaches

This workshop offers an opportunity for the discussion of new 
approaches to formal pragmatics. We invite submissions related 
but not limited to the following topics:

 - Optimality and interpretation
 - Information and relevance
 - Game theory and communication
 - Conversational implicature
 - Presupposition
 - Focus
 - Information update in dialogue
 - Dialogue acts and their representation

 Nicholas Asher (Austin)
 Helen de Hoop (Utrecht)
