6-8 September 2014, Semantic content workshop, Barcelona, Spain

Date: 6-8 September 2014
Location: Barcelona, Spain
Deadline: 31 May 2014

Recent debates about semantic content have called into question traditional accounts and have renewed interest in unorthodox approaches, in particular approaches that operate with semantic contents that do not have absolute truth-values. These novel approaches to semantic content challenge the simple models of communication and information transfer that have traditionally been assumed. They also raise independently interesting questions about linguistic communication.

The project 'Semantic Content and Conversational Dynamics' organizes an international workshop on topics relevant to these issues. Invited speakers include Frank Veltman.

Contributions are invited. There will be space for up to 8 contributed papers. Submission deadline: 31st of May 2014.
