April 12-13, 2014 Düsseldorf, Germany  


The main aim of the workshop is to get together semanticists from two different "fashions" and - instead of separating  the two sides as competing views - initiate a deeper conversation and collaboration between them. With the workshop  we seek to provide a platform to further discuss parallelisms on specific semantic issues on the one hand and on  the other hand to confront opposed claims from the two different perspectives.  


The workshop will take place in Düsseldorf at the Haus der Universität of the Heinrich-Heine-Universität on April 12-13, 2014. The workshop is organized in co-operation with the DFG Collaborative Research Centre 991.    


Peter Bosch (University of Osnabrück) Peter Gärdenfors (Lund University) Fritz Hamm (University of Tübingen) Galit W. Sassoon (Bar Ilan University) Martin Stokhof (University of Amsterdam) Joost Zwarts (Utrecht University)
