                Logic and Engineering of
           Natural Language Semantics 6 (LENLS 6)

Workshop Site : Campus Innovation Center Tokyo, Minato-ku,

LENLS is an annual international workshop focusing on formal semantics and pragmatics. In the past it has been a satellite of the Japanese Society for Artificial Intelligence conference; this year it will be part of a special workshop session to be held in November, distinct from the conference though still sponsored by JSAI.

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 following:

- Dynamic syntax/semantics/pragmatics of natural language
- Categorical/topological/coalgebraic approaches for natural
language syntax/semantics/pragmatics
- 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
interplay between logic, philosophy of language, and formal
semantics and pragmatics.

Submissions:

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

lenls6submission@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).

Important dates:

Abstract submission deadline   : August 15, 2009
Notification of acceptance     : September 15, 2009
Deadline for camera-ready copy : October 15, 2009
