Meeting Description: 

LENLS is an annual international workshop focusing on dynamic semantics
organized as a satellite of the Japanese Society for Artificial Intelligence
conference. This year's workshop, the fifth LENLS, will include a special
session devoted to the 'interactive turn' in formal pragmatics, which takes a
formal 
approach to the interactive quality of pragmatic meanings by making use of
game-theoretic, decision-theoretic and utility-theoretic approaches.
