6 - 10 August 2018, Workshop Bridging formal and conceptual semantics (BRIDGE 2018), Sofia, Bulgaria

Date: 6 - 10 August 2018
Location: Sofia, Bulgaria
Deadline: Saturday 31 March 2018

The main aim of this ESSLLI 2018 workshop is to get together linguists, philosophers and cognitive scientists from the two leading research traditions of natural language meaning, often referred to them as "formal semantics" and "conceptual semantics". The workshop provides a platform to investigate and discuss the ways of possible bridges between the two semantic perspectives, and to initiate a deeper conversation and collaboration between them. The workshop intends to gather approaches that show the way how the two perspectives can strengthen each other.

The workshop holds 6 high-quality contributed talks, each of 45 minutes including discussions, and invited talks by Gemma Boleda (Universitat Pompeu Fabra) and James Pustejovsky (Brandeis University).

The workshop invites high-quality submissions on topics closely related to the main issue of the workshop, for 45 minutes talks (incl. discussion). The submission of the abstracts will be handled via  EasyChair. Authors can submit anonymous abstracts of max. 2 pages.
