 GENERAL INFORMATION

The ninth edition of the Amsterdam Colloquium will be held from
Tuesday 14-th untill Friday 17-th of December 1993 at the University
of Amsterdam. The Amsterdam Colloquia are organized every two years
under the auspices of the ILLC (`Institute for Logic, Language and
Computation'), in which the Department of Philosophy, the Department
of Mathematics and Computer Science, and the Department of
Computational Linguistics of the University of Amsterdam cooperate
to stimulate and coordinate interdisciplinary research.

The Amsterdam Colloquia focus on the interdisciplinary study of
semantics (broadly conceived) and aim at bringing together
logicians, philosophers, linguists and computer scientists who share
an interest in semantics. The spectrum of topics covered ranges from
descriptive (semantic analyses of all kinds of expressions), to
theoretical (logical and computational properties of semantic
theories, philosophical foundations). The papers presented at the
various Colloquia have been collected in the respective Colloquia
proceedings (those of the Eighth are still available), and
selections of papers have been published in the GRASS-series, FORIS
Publications, Dordrecht.

The organizing committee of the Ninth Amsterdam Colloquium consists
of:

 Paul Dekker
 Herman Hendriks
 Marjorie Pigge
 Martin Stokhof.

Financial support is provided by:

 the ILLC, Institute for Logic, Language and Computation
 the Departments of Philosophy, of Mathematics and Computer
 Science and of Computational Linguistics, from the
 University of Amsterdam
