Meeting Description: 

Stanford, California, 26 June 2003 (co-located with CONTEXT '03) 

The late Jon Barwise was, among many other things, the first director
of the Center for the Study of Language and Information at Stanford.
His book with John Perry, Situations and Attitudes, appeared some
twenty years ago (in 1983), launching situation semantics, a semantic
framework where context is analyzed in terms of situations.

This workshop provides a forum for works addressing the following
question: What problems, issues and/or insights connected with
situation semantics and Barwise motivate your research today? And how?

Please e-mail abstracts of up to 3 pages (11pt, PDF, PostScript or
ASCII) to Tim.Fernandocs.tcd.ie on or before February 15, 2003.
Notification can be expected by March 15.
