Semantics and Philosophy in Europe

SPE colloquium will take place in Paris, May 2-4, 2008.
Arché (St Andrews), the IHPST/Chaire d'Excellence 'Ontological Structure and Semantic Structure' (Paris), Logos (Barcelona), and CSMN (Oslo) are organizing new annual colloquium 'Semantics and Philosophy in Europe' (SPE).

The purpose of the colloquium is to enhance the dialogue between linguists and philosophers and to provide a new forum for presenting research in the interface between linguistic semantics and the various related areas of philosophy (philosophy of language, epistemology, metaphysics, philosophy of mathematics, and philosophy of mind). The colloquium is to take place every year, alternating between Paris, St Andrews, Barcelona, and Oslo.
