Meeting Description: 

Logic and Engineering of Natural Language Semantics 2007 (LENLS2007), an annual
international workshop focusing on dynamic semantics, will be held
in Miyazaki, Japan, on June 18th (Mon) and 19th (Tue), 2007. This year's
workshop, the fourth LENLS, will include a special session on dynamic approaches
to semantics, syntax, and pragmatics, through which we attempt
to shed new light on the incremental comprehension of sentences and discourse
interacting with the context.
