Please note the new date of our conference. We hope there will be less
clashes with simultaneous events. Sorry for any inconveniences caused.

 "Sinn und Bedeutung"
 First Annual Conference of the Gesellschaft fuer Semantik
 Tuebingen, Germany

Revised Deadline for abstracts: 31.10.96

- -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
I include a revised version of the original posting:

Over the past few decades, the field of semantics has developed into a
rich and intriguingly diverse research area. Many different
disciplines share a common interest in the theory of meaning for
natural language(s), e.g. linguistics, philosophy of language,
psychology, logic, and computer science. The findings of the
semanticist are, of course, of primary importance to the adjacent
areas of linguistics; they serve to deepen our understanding of this
most remarkable of human cognitive abilities: language.

Despite important and very lively semantics research carried out in
the German-speaking countries, there are no regular meetings held here
to document the state of the art. We hope that "Sinn und Bedeutung"
will help remedy this deplorable situation. We will attempt to provide
a platform for the discussion and exchange of ideas, open to everyone
involved in active research in any subfield of semantics. Talks will
last 30 minutes (plus discussion). The conference will be held in
German, although papers given in English are also welcome. In
addition, this conference will serve as a first constitutive meeting
of the "Gesellschaft fuer Semantik".

If you would like to deliver a paper describing the recent results of
your research, please send a half-page abstract to the address below
before 31/10/96. Email contributions are encouraged. Our hope is to
include every submission.
