Meeting Description:

The third (In)Coherence of discourse workshop will be held in the University of Lorraine on December 3-4, 2015. The objective of the workshop is to discuss the latest advances in the modelling of discourses, in particular the kind held with pathological patients (e.g. schizophrenics). The adopted modelling paradigm is that of formal semantics, which falls within the scope of both linguistics
and logic while also making ties to the philosophy of language.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

- Discourse comprehension and representation
- Experimental studies of non standard dialogues
- Formal accounts of dialogues
- Logic and reasoning
- Semantics / Pragmatics interfaces
- Goals, intentions and commitments in dialogues
- Cognitive Psychology
- Psycholinguistics
- Mental illness and cognitive (in)coherence
- Radical interpretation
- Logicality and cognitive (in)coherence

Like the previous (In)Coherence of discourse workshops, the third edition is organised by the SLAM (Schizophrenia and Language: Analysis and Modelling) project. The SLAM project aims to systematize the study of pathological conversations as part of an interdisciplinary approach combining Psychology, Linguistics, Computer Science and Philosophy. It focuses particularly on conversations involving people with psychiatric disorders (schizophrenia, bipolar disorder).
