Meeting Description:

The Szklarska Poreba Workshop series aims to bring together researchers from semantics, pragmatics and the philosophy of language as well as logic in an intimate atmosphere that allows for the exchange of innovative and original ideas.

The goal is to broaden linguistic theory and to interconnect it with insights from other fields such as psychology, quantum cognition and (Bayesian) statistics.

Invited Speakers:

Daniel Altshuler (University of Düsseldorf)
Chiara Brozzo (University of Tübingen)
Edgar Onea (University of Göttingen)
Markus Werning (University of Bochum)

Call for Papers:

Linguists, logicians, and philosophers are invited to join the 15th Szklarska Poreba Workshop (21-24 February 2014) on the roots of pragmasemantics. This year's special topics are: 'Aspect' and 'Meaning In the Brain'. We especially invite submissions related to these topics but also welcome contributions relevant to any of the more classical subjects of this workshop series. We in particular encourage the presentation of innovative ideas, even if still in need of later refinement.

Abstracts should be submitted electronically in PDF format (via EasyChair, see the website) before 6 January 2014 and must not exceed 500 words (not including the references). One person can submit at most one abstract as sole author and one abstract as co-author. Submissions should be anonymous and not reveal the identity of the author(s) in any form (e.g., references, file name or properties of the abstract).

Topics of interest of this workshop include but are not limited to:

- Lexical and grammatical aspect
- Semantic typology of aspect
- Evolution of aspectual systems
- Brain representation of meaning
- Representationalist accounts of meaning
- Coordination on meaning
- Representation of aspectual semantics

And more traditional topics:

- Inference in natural language
- Experimental semantics and pragmatics
- Bayesian models of interpretation
- Quantum cognition
- Diachronic approaches
- Information structure and prosody
- Language typology
- Game theory
- Language evolution
- Formal models of language acquisition
