Meeting Description:

The main aim of the workshop is to get together semanticists from two different 'fashions' and - instead of separating the two sides as competing views - initiate a deeper conversation and collaboration between them. With the workshop we seek to provide a platform to further discuss parallelisms on specific semantic issues on the one hand and on the other hand to confront opposed claims from the two different perspectives.

The workshop will take place in Düsseldorf at the Heinrich-Heine-Universität on April 12-13, 2014. The workshop is organized in co-operation with the DFG Collaborative Research Centre 991.
