Welcome to the homepage of the
13th Amsterdam Colloquium

The Thirteenth Amsterdam Colloquium will be held from December 17-19 at the Universiteit van Amsterdam. The Amsterdam Colloquia aim at bringing together linguists, philosophers, logicians and computer scientists who share an interest in the formal study of semantics of natural and formal languages. The spectrum of topics covered ranges from descriptive (semantic analyses of all kinds of expressions) to theoretical (logical and computational properties of semantic theories, philosophical foundations).
Following the Amsterdam Colloquium, on December 20 a one day event will take place, in which the Spinoza project Logic in Action of Johan van Benthem is closed off.
