Call For Papers

We invite submissions for the Workshop 'Intervention Effects from a
Semantic Perspective', which is
part of GLOW 34, Vienna

Organizers: Arnim von Stechow, Doris Penka

The workshop focuses on the semantic component of intervention effects.
Both semantic evidence to detect intervention effects and semantic
explanations for intervention effects are of relevance. Of particular interest
are semantic characterizations of interveners and the configurations
excluded by intervention effects.

The questions that are of interest and will be addressed in the workshop
include the following:
-In which areas do intervention effects arise? Are there phenomena that
qualify as intervention effects but haven't been classified as such yet?
-Do excluded constellation lead to semantic ill-formedness?
-Are interveners the same across the different phenomena?
-Can the elements that act as interveners be characterized in a unified
-Is it possible to give a unified explanation for intervention effects across
different phenomena?

Abstracts adressing the topic are invited for 35-minute talks (plus 10
minutes for discussion). Abstracts have to be anonymous and limited to two
pages (using 1-inch margins on all sides and 12pt font size) including
examples and references.

All abstracts must be submitted to following e-mail address:
