Experimental as well as theoretical approaches are welcome. We in particular encourage the presentation of innovative ideas, even if still in need of later refinement and submissions by students who have no previous experience presenting at international workshops.

Coordination on meaning
Inference in natural language
Experimental semantics and pragmatics
Bayesian models of interpretation
Quantum cognition and language
Grammaticalisation and other approaches to diachrony
Language typology and semantics/pragmatics
Game theoretical pragmatics
Formal models of language acquisition
