 December 17 -- 20, 1997

The Eleventh Amsterdam Colloquium is planned from Wednesday 17
until Saturday 20 December 1997, at the University of Amsterdam.
The Amsterdam Colloquia aim at bringing together logicians,
philosophers, linguists and computer scientists who share an
interest in semantics.

 *The Eleventh Installment*

The program of the Eleventh Amsterdam Colloquium will include
four invited lectures by renowned experts in the field, as well
as about 50 talks selected by an international program
committee. The spectrum of topics covered may range from
descriptive (semantic analyses of all kinds of expressions) to
theoretical (logical and computational properties of semantic
theories, philosophical foundations). Furthermore two (plenary)
workshops are planned: one on "Games in Logic" and one on "The
Semantics of Topic and Focus in Discourse".

 *Submission of abstracts*

The Colloquium has room for about 50 contributed talks of
approximately 30 minutes. People who want to contribute a paper
are requested to send in *eight copies* of an *anonymous*
abstract of *two pages* (at most 1000 words). The abstract must
include a short, 10 line, *summary* clearly indicating subject
matter and conclusions. A *separate* leaflet should specify the
author's name, affiliation, postal address, e-mail address plus
the title of the contribution. Submission by e-mail is
possible, provided that the abstract, summary and personal
details are in ASCII.

The *deadline* for submission of abstracts is September 1, 1997.
Authors will be notified of acceptance by October 15. Extended
6 page abstracts, to be included in the proceedings, are due
November 15. The proceedings will be distributed at the

 *Submission of abstracts for the Topic/Focus workshop*

We also invite submissions for the workshop on "The Semantics of
Topic and Focus in Discourse". There is room for six
contributions, which will be selected by a special program
committee. Submissions for this workshop should contain *six
copies* reporting on original work, they must be *anonymous*,
and they should be no more than *six pages* long. On the
*leaflet* specifying the author, affiliation, postal address,
e-mail and title of the contribution, it should clearly state
"Submission for the Topic/Focus Workshop".

 *Multiple submissions*

People are allowed to send in multiple submissions, but at most
one will be selected for the regular program, and at most one
for the Topic and Focus workshop. (So, notice, that it is
possible, in principle, that one person acts both on the
regular program and in the workshop.)

 *Important Dates*

 -> 01-09-97 Deadline for submissions
 -> 15-10-97 Notification of acceptance
