Meeting Description:

PHLING, a graduate student research group in philosophy and linguistics at the University of Maryland, is hosting its first interdisciplinary research symposium, PHLINC (Philosophy & Linguistics Colloquium) on //events//. We hope to bring together young researchers working on events in philosophy, linguistics and psychology. We aim to relate the discussion of events in these fields, bringing into conversation the work in ontology, logic, semantics, and perception. We will also have two invited speakers: Achille Varzi, of Columbia University, and Paul Pietroski, of the University of Maryland.

Registration is free for all who wish to attend. To view the abstracts, register, and get directions on getting to College Park, visit the PHLINC website: http://phling.umd.edu/symposia.html
