LENLS is an annual international workshop on formal syntax, semantics and pragmatics. It will be held as one of the workshops of the Sixth JSAI International Symposia on AI (isAI2014) (http://www.ai-gakkai.or.jp/isai/) sponsored by the Japan Society for Artificial Intelligence (JSAI) (http://www.ai-gakkai.or.jp/en).

This year we are planning to hold a student session. The details will be announced later.
