Message 2: Formal Semantics in Moscow 2
Date: 12-Feb-2006
From: Igor Yanovich <ritchiebrukvarmail.ru>
Subject: Formal Semantics in Moscow 2



Full Title: Formal Semantics in Moscow 2
Short Title: FSIM 2

Date: 15-Apr-2006 - 15-Apr-2006
Location: Moscow, Russia
Contact Person: Igor Yanovich
Meeting Email: Igor_Yabbyy.com

Linguistic Field(s): Semantics

Call Deadline: 20-Feb-2006

Meeting Description:

Formal Semantics in Moscow is a student-run annual workshop. The main aim of the
workshop is to provide an opportunity for students and young researchers to
present their work (possibly in progress) in the field of formal semantics and
to get feedback from their colleagues.

FORMAL SEMANTICS IN MOSCOW 2 - DEADLINE EXTENSION.

Due to several requests, the FSIM-2 deadline is extended. The extended deadline
is February 20th.

We invite submissions of abstracts for 20 minute presentations (plus 10 minute
discussion) on any topic pertaining to formal semantics. The workshop is
intended mainly for students and young researchers, and presentations of work in
progress are welcome. Papers linking Western and East European semantic
traditions are especially welcome. Languages of the workshop are English and
Russian.

If you are not a student or a young researcher, it does not mean that you cannot
submit a paper, just bear in mind that most talks will be made by
(under)graduate students and young researchers.

The workshop will be held on Saturday April 15, probably, at Moscow State
University.

Invited speaker: Elena Viktorovna Paduceva (VINITI RAN)

Abstracts should be anonymous and should not exceed 2 pages, including examples
and references, with one-inch limits on each side and typed in at least 11-point
font. Authors may be involved in at most two abstracts and may be the sole
author of at most one submission. We accept only electronic submissions. The
preferable format is pdf, but Word and txt abstracts will be accepted too. If
you use Word, please save the abstract as an rtf file. Abstracts should be sent
to fsim2.submissionsgmail.com.

Please write your name and the word 'abstract' in the subject field of your
e-mail, and include your name, affiliation, contact information, and the title
of the submission in the body of the message. The deadline for the receipt of
abstracts is February 20. Authors will be notified of the review results late
February or early March.

WARNING: Unfortunately, getting a Russian visa for a business trip is not easy.
We will be able to send you an official invitation, but it takes several weeks
to make it, and it is not very easy to get a visa with this kind of invitation
from the university. If you would like to participate in the workshop, please
consider getting a tourist visa - it is much easier to get.

Limited crash space is available upon request.

Organizing committee:

Igor Yanovich, Moscow State University
Elizaveta Bylinina, Institute of Linguistics, Russian Academy of Sciences
Peter Arkadiev, Institute of Slavic studies, Russian Academy of Sciences

Barbara H. Partee, UMass Amherst (Honorary Mentor of the Committee)
