LENLS is an annual international workshop focusing on formal semantics and
pragmatics. In the past it has been a satellite of the Japanese Society for
Artificial Intelligence conference; this year it will be part of a special
workshop session to be held in November, distinct from the conference though
still sponsored by JSAI.
We invite submissions to this year's workshop on topics in formal semantics and
pragmatics, and related fields, including but in no way limited to the following:
- Dynamic syntax/semantics/pragmatics of natural language
- Categorical/topological/coalgebraic approaches for natural language
- Logic and its relation to natural language and linguistic reasoning
(especially dynamic logics)
- Type-theoretic approaches to natural language
- Philosophy of language
- Formal pragmatics (especially game- and utility-theoretic approaches)
- Substructural expansion of Lambek Lambda Calculi
- Many-valued/Fuzzy and other non-classical logics and natural language
This year we especially welcome submissions related to the interplay between
logic, philosophy of language, and formal semantics and pragmatics.
Abstracts should be between 2 and 4 pages in length and in pdf format.
Submissions should be sent to: lenls6submissiongmail.com
The proceedings of the workshop will be available at the conference site for
registered persons. We also plan to publish a selection of the accepted papers
as a portion of a volume in the `Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence'
series (Springer Verlag).
Abstract submission deadline: August 15, 2009
Notification of acceptance: September 15, 2009
Deadline for camera-ready copy: October 15, 2009

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as such
can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 501(c) Non
Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These donations can be
offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return (U.S. tax payers
only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact your financial advisor.
Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any
gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your contacting
your human resources department and sending us a form that the EMU Foundation fills
in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple administrative procedure
that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an extra penny.
Please take a moment to check if your company operates such a program.
Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
