20 - 22 September 2019, 11th Semantics and Philosophy in Europe Colloquium (SPE11), Warsaw, Poland

Date: 20 - 22 September 2019
Location: Warsaw, Poland
Deadline: Friday 31 May 2019

The purpose of the Semantics and Philosophy in Europe (SPE) colloquia is to provide a forum for presenting research in the interface between linguistic semantics and various areas of philosophy (philosophy of language, philosophy of mind/cognition, metaphysics etc.). This year's Semantics and Philosophy in Europe Colloquium features a general session as well as two special sessions (preceded by tutorials):
1 - Subjectivity: Theoretical and Experimental Perspectives
2 - Truthmaker Semantics and Situations

There will also be two invited lectures on the influence of the Lvov-Warsaw School on contemporary semantics and philosophy of language.

We invite abstract submissions for 40-minute talks (30 min + 10min discussion) on the topic of either the general session or one of the two special sessions. Abstracts should contain original research that, at the time of submission, has neither been published nor accepted for publication. One person can submit at most one abstract as sole author and one abstract as co-author (or two co-authored abstracts).

For the general session, we invite any contributions on topics at the interface of linguistics an philosophy, including but not limited to work on truth and meaning, the architecture of language, reference, attitude reports, the formal ontology of language, the relation between syntax, semantics, and pragmatics, semantics and the brain, and semantics of other symbolic systems.
