  • 4 December 2019, LUNCH Seminar, Davide Grossi

    Speaker: Davide Grossi
    Title: Tales of Deliberation. Told by 1 Journalist, 1 Politician, 6 Comedians, 12 (Angry) Men … and 3 Sciences
    Date & Time: Wednesday 4 December 2019, 13:00-14:00
    Location: ILLC Common Room (F1.21), Science Park 107, Amsterdam

    How do deliberating groups work? And can we design deliberative processes that can guarantee well-informed decisions? In this talk I will introduce, in a light way, a number of features of deliberative processes that I consider central, show their relevance for research in logic, economics and linguistics, and highlight some challenges for the development of a science of deliberative processes.

  • 3 - 14 August 2020, 32nd European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information (ESSLLI 2020), Utrecht, The Netherlands

    Date: 3 - 14 August 2020
    Location: Utrecht, The Netherlands
    Deadline: Saturday 1 June 2019

    Under the auspices of FoLLI the European Summer School in Logic, Language, and Information (ESSLLI) is organized every year in a different European country. It takes place over two weeks in the European Summer, hosts approximately 50 different courses at both the introductory and advanced levels, attracting around 400 participants each year from all the world.

    The main focus of the program of the summer schools is the interface between linguistics, logic and computation, with special emphasis in human linguistic and cognitive ability. Courses, both introductory and advanced, cover a wide variety of topics within the combined areas of interest: Logic and Computation, Computation and Language, and Language and Logic. Workshops are also organized, providing opportunities for in-depth discussion of issues at the forefront of research, as well as a series of invited lectures.

  • 10 - 14 August 2020, Computational and Experimental Explanations in Semantics and Pragmatics

    Date: 10 - 14 August 2020
    Location: Utrecht
    Deadline: Saturday 15 February 2020

    The field of natural language semantics has undergone what some refer to as an ‘experimental turn’ and is arguably currently undergoing a ‘computational turn’. By expanding the toolbox available to the semanticist, these two turns have the effect of expanding the phenomena that can be explained and the varieties of semantic explanation that can be offered.

    For example, experimental methods can help distinguish between alternative explanations of semantic effects, e.g. whether to classify controversial phenomena as implicatures or presuppositions. Similarly, computational models of semantics can generate fine-grained and non-categorical predictions that can fruitfully be tested experimentally. And both kinds of methods can be used to ask questions about the emergence of semantic structures in language, including which factors influence their distribution and typology.

    Given this wider toolbox and purview, we aim to gather a workshop to showcase exciting new work that develops new semantic explanations using experimental and computational methods, as well as to invite broader reflection on the methodology of semantics now and in its future.
