Meeting Description:

The Amsterdam Colloquia aim at bringing together linguists, philosophers, logicians, cognitive scientists and computer scientists who share an interest in the formal study of the semantics and pragmatics of natural and formal languages.

The 20th Amsterdam Colloquium will feature two workshops on Negation and on Reasoning in Natural Language; and one evening lecture, jointly organized with the E.W. Beth Foundation.

Furthermore, there will be a special issue of the journal Topoi with selected contributions presented at the Colloquium, both in the main programme and in the workshops.

Submission Guidelines and Instructions:

The rules for submissions for the regular programme and the workshops are the same. Authors can submit an anonymous abstract of at most two pages. When you submit your abstract, you will be asked to provide a short summary of at most 200 words in the EasyChair submission form. Note that the field for entering this summary is labeled ''abstract'' in EasyChair; this is not to be confused with the full two-page abstract, which needs to be provided separately as a PDF. The 200 word summary should clearly indicate subject matter and conclusions (it need not be included in the full two-page abstract). Submitting the same abstract for more than one category (general programme, workshop on negation, workshop on reasoning in natural language) is not allowed. The organizers reserve the right to re-allocate accepted talks to a different category.

The deadline for the submission of abstracts is September 1, 2015. Authors will be notified of acceptance by 20 October. Full papers (10 pages) to be included in the proceedings, are due on 1 December. The proceedings of the Amsterdam Colloquium will be downloadable from the AC website during the conference.

Submission deadline: September 1, 2015
Notification of acceptance: October 20, 2015
Deadline for proceeding papers: December 1, 2015
