Meeting Description:

The Amsterdam Graduate Philosophy Conference 2010 is organised by the
Department of Philosophy and the Institute for Logic, Language, and
Computation of the Universiteit van Amsterdam. The conference will be held
between Thursday the 30th of September and Saturday the 2nd of October.

The theme this year is 'Truth, Meaning, and Normativity'.

We are pleased to announce our keynote speakers: Paul Egré (Paris);
Jeroen Groenendijk (Amsterdam); Max Kölbel (Barcelona); Hannes Leitgeb
(Bristol); and Åsa Wikforss (Stockholm).

The conference will take place at the Allard Pierson Museum.

Call For Papers

The 3rd Amsterdam Graduate Philosophy Conference on 'Truth, Meaning,
and Normativity' is devoted to continue the discussions that were raised in
the previous two conferences, as well as to lay the ground for new ones.

We invite submissions from graduate researchers conducting novel
philosophical research into any of the three conference topics. We also
encourage submissions that inform the discussion about truth, meaning,
and/or normativity by offering a philosophical interpretation of results from
other fields such as logic, cognitive psychology and linguistics (including
formal semantics and sociolinguistics).

Areas of interest include but are not restricted to: formal theories of truth;
deflationism; vagueness; proof-theoretic versus truth-theoretic conceptions
of meaning; meaning as use; the semantics-pragmatics interface;
compositionality; criteria and evidence for evaluating competing theories of
truth and/or meaning; semantic normativity with respect to meaning, use,
content, and context; syntax and logical form.

Since the topics of truth, meaning, and normativity naturally feed into each
other, we also welcome contributions whose particular aim is to explore any
of the many intricate ways in which these notions relate to one another.
Submissions on the role that these notions have played, or play, in the
broad (analytic) tradition or, more specifically, within the linguistic turn are
also of interest to the conference.

Submission information:

We invite submissions in the form of short papers (not longer than 4000
words) accompanied by short abstracts (not longer than 150 words). The
deadline for submission is 18 July and it should follow the on-line
submission form, available here:

Candidates eligible for submission are graduate students and those who
have completed a doctoral dissertation within the last three years.

Successful candidates will be allotted a 45-minute time slot, comprising of a
25-minute presentation, a short commentary by an appointed speaker and
discussion with the audience. Candidates will be notified by August 30 of
whether their paper has been accepted for presentation. The speakers will
have the chance to send a revised version of their paper, as well as a
revised version of their abstract for publication in the conference book of

Please note that submitting an abstract does not automatically count as
