5-6 February 2015, Logic Now and Then 3 (LNAT3), Brussels, Belgium

Date: 5-6 February 2015
Location: Brussels, Belgium
Deadline: 1 December 2014

The conference will be devoted to the relationship between the semantics and pragmatics of logical constants (connectives, quantifiers, modal operators). Its aim is to critically assess and contribute to semantic and pragmatic theories developed for constructions containing such operators in natural language. On the one hand, we hope to bring together cutting edge contributions to debates that are currently in full swing, but at the same time, we very much invite contributions of a more historical nature, which shed light on antecedents of current views and issues, thereby placing them in a wider diachronic perspective. In short, the semantics and pragmatics of logical constants now and then.

Invited speakers:
* Rick Nouwen (Utrecht University)
* Daniel Rothschild (University College London)
* Johan van der Auwera (University of Antwerp)
