Call for Papers
Theme: Meaning & Truth
The conference is dedicated to exploring new ideas on what has been and remains
a fundamental theme in the philosophy of language, namely, the relation between
meaning and truth. We invite papers from young researchers who have an original
contribution to make regarding the role of truth in a theory of meaning, the
role of meaning in a theory of truth, or even the question of whether meaning
and truth are actually related in an interesting way.
The conference is motivated by the ongoing debates and discussions that pose
new challenges on how to conceive of meaning and of truth, and the relation
between them. Some areas of interest here include: truth-functional vs. proof-
theoretic semantics; semantic theories of truth; the role of context in
interpretation; semantic normativity; deflationism; meaning as use;
inferentialism; compositionality; vagueness; the semantics-pragmatics interface;
