      Dear colleagues,
      The original version of this message was in the form of a pdf attachment, which I have converted to plain text, with some loss of formatting, but the information is all here. This is a great conference, biennial, for those with interests in formal semantics, logic, and/or theoretical computer science.
      Best wishes, Barbara

      The Fifteenth Amsterdam Colloquium

      December 19 - 21, 2005

      The Fifteenth Amsterdam Colloquium will be held December 19 - 21 at the University of Amsterdam.

      The Amsterdam Colloquia aim at bringing together linguists, philosophers, logicians and computer

      scientists who share an interest in the formal study of the semantics and pragmatics of natural and

      formal languages. The spectrum of topics covered ranges from descriptive (syntactic and semantic

      analyses of all kinds of expressions) to theoretical (logical and computational properties of semantic

      theories, philosophical foundations, evolution and learning of language).

      The program of the Fifteenth Amsterdam Colloquium includes four invited lectures by renowned experts

      in the field. The following people have accepted our invitation to give a plenary lecture:

      . Sigrid Beck (Linguistics, University of Connecticut)

      . Nissim Francez (The Technion, Haifa)

      . Manfred Krifka (Humboldt-Universit¨at, Berlin)

      . Lawrence S. Moss (Indiana University, Bloomington)

      The colloquium also accommodates two thematic sessions:

      . "Language and Learning", organized by Pieter Adriaans, Robert van Rooij and Khalil Sima´an;

      invited speakers:

      - James Cussens (Department of Computer Science, University of York)

      - Jacqueline van Kampen (OTS, Utrecht)

      - Makoto Kanazawa (National Institute of Informatics, Tokyo)

      - Claire Nedellec (INRA, Jouy-en-Josas)

      . "Semantics Universals", organized by Paul Dekker and Kees Hengeveld; invited speakers:

      - Johan van der Auwera (UFSIA, Antwerpen)

      - David Gil (Max Planck Institut, Leipzig)

      - Helen de Hoop (Radboud University, Nijmegen)

      - Ed Keenan (UCLA, Los Angeles)

      Submission of abstracts

      The general program will host 30 contributed talks of 30 minutes. Authors can submit an anonymous

      abstract of two pages (800 words), at our website specified below. The abstract should include a short

      10 line summary clearly indicating subject matter and conclusions. Author's name, aliation, postal

      address, and e-mail address can be specified separately.

      The deadline for the submission of abstracts is September 1, 2005. Authors will be notified of

      acceptance by October 15. Extended 6 page abstracts, to be included in the proceedings, are due

      November 15. The proceedings will be distributed at the conference.

      Multiple submissions are allowed, but no single author will be accepted to give more than

      one presentation. In case authors are involved in more than one submission, one or more of which are

      co-authored, then it should be indicated clearly which author is actually going to give the presentation.
