GENERAL ORGANIZATION
Markus Werning and Heinrich Wansing

It is with great pleasure that we announce the upcoming Semantics and Philosophy in Europe 4 
conference. The conference will feature expert tutorials, symposia, roundtables, and a colloquium 
on the following topics:

A) The Semantics and Pragmatics of Quotation
B) The Semantics of Action Sentences
C) The Semantics and Epistemology of Mental State Ascriptions

The purpose of the SPE workshops 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 related areas of philosophy (philosophy of language, logic, philosophy of mind, metaphysics, 
philosophy of mathematics, epistemology) . SPE takes place annually in different European cities. 
The previous meetings took place in Paris (SPE1, 2008), London (SPE2, 2009), and Paris (SPE3, 2010).

Submissions of abstracts (650 words including references) are invited for 30 min talks or poster 
presentations on each of the three themes of the conference or related topics. Submissions will be 
accepted via the conference website until 15 June, 2011.
