The 18th Amsterdam Colloquium will be held December 19-21, 2011 at the University of Amsterdam. The Amsterdam Colloquia aim at bringing together linguists, philosophers, logicians, cognitive scientists and computer scientists who share an interest in the formal study of the semantics and pragmatics of natural and formal languages. The spectrum of topics covered ranges from descriptive (syntactic and semantic analyses of all kinds of expressions) to theoretical (logical and computational properties of semantic theories, philosophical foundations, evolution and learning of language).
The program of the 18th Amsterdam Colloquium includes four invited lectures by renowned experts in the field:
- Irene Heim (MIT)
- Donka Farkas (University of California, Santa Cruz)
- Seth Yalcin (University of California, Berkeley)
- Chung-chieh Shan (Rutgers University)
The colloquium also accommodates three thematic workshops:
Formal Semantics and Pragmatics of Sign Languages:
Organizers: Vadim Kimmelman, Roland Pfau and Anne Baker
Invited speaker: Philippe Schlenker (Institut Jean-Nicod, Paris and New York University)
Organizers: Jeroen Groenendijk, Floris Roelofsen and Matthijs Westera
Invited speaker: Manfred Krifka (Humboldt University, Berlin)
Formal Semantic Evidence:
Organizers: Katrin Schulz and Galit Weidman Sassoon

The Amsterdam Colloquia are organized by the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation (ILLC) of the University of Amsterdam. The organizing committee of the 18th Amsterdam Colloquium consists of Maria Aloni, Peter van Ormondt, Floris Roelofsen, Galit Weidman Sassoon and Matthijs Westera.
