This is a collaborative project between the Institute of Philosophy of the Slovak Academy of Sciences and the Department of Philosophy of the University of Vienna whose main aim is to establish a network that allows researchers from Slovakia and Austria working in the philosophy of language (within the analytic tradition) to interact. While contacts between researchers from the two countries have been previously established, no such networks specifically involving philosophers of language have been set up so far. The purpose of this project is to fill this lacuna.


The coordinator of the project is Dr. Matteo Pascucci (Slovak Academy of Sciences), who is also responsible for the Slovak chapter. Responsible for the Vienna chapter is Professor Max Kölbel (University of Vienna).


The specific form taken by the planned collaboration involves the organization by the project partners of several events: talks by PhD students/ postdoctoral researchers /professors (from each country); an international conference with invited speakers and contributed presentations selected via a call for presentations; a meeting about future collaborations. Below you can find the schedule of these events. The organizers acknowledge the gracious help of the Vienna Forum for Analytic Philosophy, of the Logic Cafe and the "Vienna Language and Mind" seminar for providing the venue for the talks at the University of Vienna.
