      First call for papers

      International Multidisciplinary Colloquium:
      Mass/Count in Linguistics, Philosophy and Cognitive Science


      December 20-21, 2012
      ENS-Paris, France

      December 18-19, 2012: Tutorial
      The colloquium will preceded by a two day-tutorial on the mass-count distinction


      The aim of this colloquium is to provide a platform of exchange between
      linguists, philosophers and psychologists, working the different aspects of the
      mass/count distinction. Such a resolutely interdisciplinary approach is indeed
      necessary to fully apprehend the new questions that are presently arising in
      connection to the mass/count distinction. This multidisciplinary conference
      aspires to move this scientific debate forward, and contribute to the evolution
      of current methodology.

      A more detailed description is available on the dedicated website:
      http://mass-count.sciencesconf.org/

      Topics of particular interest include, but are not limited to:

      - Alternative approaches to standard extensional mereology
      - Analysis of the (quasi-)classifier role on nouns in constructions like “the
      town of Paris”
      - The mass/count distinction in connection to non-sortal nouns like “the kind”
      of “the type”, etc.
      - Plurality and individuation of reference
      - Syntactic mapping
      - Experimental psychology and assessment of theoretical analyses
