sponsored by JSAI. 

Call For Papers

Extended Deadline

Due to several requests the deadline for submission of abstracts to LENLS7 
has been extended to August 31. 

We invite submissions to this year's workshop on topics in formal semantics 
and pragmatics, and related fields, including but in no way limited to the 

- Dynamic syntax/semantics/pragmatics of natural language
- Categorical/topological/coalgebraic approaches for natural language 
- Logic and its relation to natural language and linguistic reasoning 
(especially dynamic logics)
- Type-theoretic approaches to natural language
- Philosophy of language
- Formal pragmatics (especially game- and utility-theoretic approaches)
- Substructural expansion of Lambek Lambda Calculi
- Many-valued/Fuzzy and other non-classical logics and natural language

This year we especially welcome submissions related to the ''Formal
Structures of Salience''. Salience is a concept with broad application in 
linguistics and philosophy; in recent years, it has played a role in the 
analysis of phenomena including focus, particles, and anaphora resolution 
within linguistics, and in philosophy it has been used in analyses of various 
kinds of context dependency (e.g. domain restriction and vagueness), as 
well as in the analysis of convention. However, in many cases, the concept 
of salience is left as a primitive. Submissions discussing foundational issues 
in the understanding of salience would be welcomed. We especially hope 
for contributions with a formal orientation.

On the 20th, there will also be a special tutorial lecture at Ochanomizu 
University by Professor Baltag.


Abstracts should be between 2 and 4 pages in length and in pdf format. 
Submissions should be sent to:

lenls7submission at gmail.com

The proceedings of the workshop will be available at the conference site for 
registered persons. We also plan to publish a selection of the accepted 
papers as a portion of a volume in the 'Lecture Notes in Artificial 
Intelligence' series (Springer Verlag).

Abstract submission deadline: August 15, 2010
Notification of acceptance: September 15, 2010
Deadline for camera-ready copy: October 15, 2010
