 Call for Participation


The Institute for Logic, Language and Computation (Amsterdam) and the
Dutch Graduate School in Logic hereby announce the first of a planned
series of courses on the internet.

This first course is one on dynamic semantics, a discipline in the
semantics of natural language in which interpretation is conceived of
as a process essentially tied to change of information. The course is
given by Paul Dekker and David Beaver (both ILLC,
Amsterdam). Additional coordination by Erik-Jan van der Linden (also

The course is meant for PhD students and advanced undergraduates who are
familiar with basic notions of logic and model-theoretic semantics.

Distinctive feature of this course is that it is held on the world
wide web. All communication (including an electronic classroom,
readers, collaboration on exercises etc.) takes place at the internet.

The course is given from May 3 to July 12. The course offers room for
a limited number (20) of participants, but it can also be followed by
observers who are professionally interested in the experiment. People
who are interested are adviced to subscribe soon. By following the
course the students can earn official credits (10 ECTS credits).

For more information on the course and on how to subscribe (both as a
participant and as an observer), the interested reader is referred to
