We invite submissions to this year’s workshop on topics in formal semantics and pragmatics, and related fields, including but in no way limited to the following:

- Dynamic syntax/semantics/pragmatics of natural language- Categorical/topological/coalgebraic approaches for natural language syntax/semantics/pragmatics- Logic and its relation to natural language and linguistic reasoning (especially dynamic logics)- Type-theoretic approaches to natural language- Formal philosophy of language- Formal pragmatics (especially game-theoretic and utility-theoretic approaches)- Substructural expansion of Lambek Lambda Calculi- Many-valued/Fuzzy and other non-classical logics and natural language


Abstracts (up to 4 pages, including figures and references) must be submitted electronically in PDF format at:
