LENLS is an annual international workshop on formal syntax, semantics and pragmatics. It will be held as one of the workshops of the fifth JSAI International Symposia on AI (isAI2013) (
sponsored by the Japan Society for Artificial Intelligence (JSAI) (

  • 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
  • Formal Philosophy of language
  • Formal pragmatics (especially game-theoretic and utility-theoretic approaches)
  • Substructural expansion of Lambek Lambda Calculi
  • Many-valued/Fuzzy and other non-classical logics and natural language

Abstracts (up to 4 pages, including figures and references) must be submitted electronically in PDF format at:
