Meeting Description:

Recently, one of the main streams of the formal semantics of natural
language and logic has been developing "dynamic semantics." The aim of
this workshop is to explore the theory and application of dynamic
semantics to natural language. Areas of exploration will include the
application of dynamic semantics to natural language semantics,
programming languages, natural language processing, and other areas of
information engineering.
