26 September - 1 October 2011, Semantics and Philosophy in Europe (SPE4), Bochum, Germany

Date: 26 September - 1 October 2011
Location: Bochum, Germany
Deadline: 15 June 2011

It is with great pleasure that we announce the upcoming Semantics and Philosophy in Europe 4 conference. The conference will feature expert tutorials, symposia, roundtables, and a colloquium on the following topics: The Semantics and Pragmatics of Quotation, The Semantics of Action Sentences, and The Semantics and Epistemology of Mental State Ascriptions.

The purpose of the SPE workshops is to enhance the dialogue between linguists and philosophers and to provide a new forum for presenting research in the interface between linguistic semantics and the related areas of philosophy (philosophy of language, logic, philosophy of mind, metaphysics, philosophy of mathematics, epistemology) . SPE takes place annually in different European cities. The previous meetings took place in Paris (SPE1, 2008), London (SPE2, 2009), and Paris (SPE3, 2010).

Submissions of abstracts (650 words including references) are invited for 30 min talks or poster presentations on each of the three topics of the conference. Submissions will be accepted via the conference website until 15 June, 2011.
