 December 18---21, 1995

The Tenth Amsterdam Colloquium will be held from Monday 18 until
Thursday 21, December 1995, at the University of Amsterdam. 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 Amsterdam Colloquia are organized every two years under the
auspices of the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation
(ILLC), 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 Tenth Installment*

The following people have in principle accepted our invitation to
give a lecture:
