The Amsterdam Colloquia 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 organizing committee of the Tenth Amsterdam Colloquium consists
of Paul Dekker, Jeroen Groenendijk, Erik-Jan van der Lnden, Marjorie Pigge and
Martin Stokhof. Financial support is provided by the ILLC, the
Department of Philosophy, the Department of Mathematics and Computer
Science, the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW),
the Dutch Graduate School in Logic (OzsL), and the Foundation for
Language Speech and Logic (TSL) of the Netherlands Organization for
Scientific Research.
