30 September - 2 October 2010, Amsterdam Graduate Philosophy Conference on "Truth, Meaning, and Normativity" (AGPC'10), Allard Pierson Museum, Amsterdam

Date: 30 September - 2 October 2010
Location: Allard Pierson Museum, Amsterdam
Costs: 60 euro (students) or 90 euros (others)
Deadline: 18 July 2010

The Amsterdam Graduate Philosophy Conference 2010 is organised by the Department of Philosophy and the Institute for Logic, Language, and Computation of the Universiteit van Amsterdam. The 3rd Amsterdam Graduate Philosophy Conference is devoted to continue the discussions that were raised in the previous two conferences, as well as to lay the ground for new ones. The theme this year is Truth, Meaning, and Normativity.

We invite submissions from graduate researchers conducting novel philosophical research into any of the three conference topics. We also encourage submissions that inform the discussion about truth, meaning, and/or normativity by offering a philosophical interpretation of results from other fields such as logic, cognitive psychology and linguistics (including formal semantics and sociolinguistics).

Since the topics of truth, meaning, and normativity naturally feed into each other, we also welcome contributions whose particular aim is to explore any of the many intricate ways in which these notions relate to one another. Submissions on the role that these notions have played, or play, in the broad (analytic) tradition or, more specifically, within the linguistic turn are also of interest to the conference.

For more information, please visit the conference website at http://www.illc.uva.nl/agpc/agpc10/, or contact .

The deadline for submission is 18 July and it should follow the on-line submission form, available on the conference website. Candidates eligible for submission are graduate students and those who have completed a doctoral dissertation within the last three years.
