Call for Papers:

Philosophy of language has witnessed important developments over the last ten years, focusing on the interplay between meaning and context, as well as the role of implicit content in linguistic communication. The progress made by philosophers of language on those issues is closely connected with the research of linguists on the semantics/pragmatics interface. These various advances will be reviewed and assessed from the perspectives of both philosophy of language and linguistics.

The event will be mixed: part conference and part summer school (with the sponsorship of CNRS), it will also be a meeting point for two European networks of researchers working on the themes of the meeting. There will be a series of symposia on specific topics; mini-courses given by specialists of the field; presentations by selected international graduate students and young scholars; and meetings/workshops organized by the two research networks.

Call for Papers from Young Researchers:

Abstracts from PhD students and young researchers having defended their PhD within the last three years are invited for papers on topics relevant to the fields of the meeting.

Please email your proposal to gmail.com> by February 28, 2011, with the header 'Paper submission'. Abstracts should include sufficient details to allow reviewers to judge the scientific merits of the work, and should not be longer than two pages. They should be prepared for blind-reviewing. Please include in the accompanying email all the information specified in the call for participation. Paper presentations will be allowed 35 minutes, plus 15 minutes for discussion.
