Call for Papers

23rd Amsterdam Colloquium

19 - 21 December 2022

The Amsterdam Colloquia aim at bringing together linguists, philosophers, logicians, cognitive scientists and computer scientists who share an interest in the formal study of the semantics and pragmatics of natural and formal languages.


The 23rd Amsterdam Colloquium will feature two workshops, one on Biases in Language and Cognition and one on Compositional Approaches to Projection, and one evening lecture by Prof. Craige Roberts, jointly organized with the E.W. Beth Foundation.


The submission of abstracts are handled via EasyChair at the following link:


Submission guidelines and instructions
The rules for submissions are the same for the regular programme and the workshops. Authors can submit an anonymous abstract of at most two pages (excluding references), with an optional third page for tables and figures, with 1 inch margins and 11pt font. The time for presentations of accepted submissions for both regular programme and the workshops is 30 mins (20/25 mins + Q&A).


The Amsterdam Colloquium will feature a poster/ lighting talks session for both the regular programme and the workshops. Poster presentations will be published as regular papers in the proceedings. The time for lighting talks is 3 mins. 

When you submit your abstract, you will be asked to state whether you are submitting to the general programme, the workshop on biases in language and cognition or the workshop on compositional approaches to projection. You will also be asked to provide a short summary of at most 200 words. Note that the field for entering this summary is labeled “abstract” in EasyChair; this is not to be confused with the full two-page abstract, which needs to be provided separately as a PDF. The 200 word summary should clearly indicate subject matter and conclusions (it need not be included in the full two-page abstract).

Submitting the same abstract for more than one category (general programme, workshop on biases, workshop on projection) is not allowed. The organizers reserve the right to re-allocate accepted abstracts to a different category. Authors can submit at most one abstract as a single author, and at most two abstracts in total.

The deadline for the submission of abstracts is 7 September 2022. Authors will be notified of acceptance by 20 October. Authors of accepted abstracts will either be invited to give a talk or to present a poster at the conference. All accepted abstracts, including for the poster session, will be included as full papers in the proceedings. Full papers (6 pages, excluding references) are due on 1 December. The proceedings of the Amsterdam Colloquium will be downloadable from the Amsterdam Colloquium website during the conference.
