A formal semantics conference.

The 2006 Milan Meeting is hosted by the Università degli Studi di Milano from June 15 to June 17, 2006 at Palazzo Feltrinelli in Gargnano, on lake Garda. The Milan meeting is a formal semantics conference.

Invited speakers:


The aim of the conference is to provide a forum for formal semanticists and for philosophers of language working on foundational issues in semantics to discuss topics that are relevant for both groups. We accept abstracts on any area of formal semantics and philosophy of language that fit this aim.
