The main aims of this conference are to strengthen the interest in formal semantics among philosophers and to strengthen the interaction between formal and foundational semantics.

The conference is organized by CLLAM at the Department of Philosophy, Stockholm University. CLLAM is a member of the PLM network, devoted to furthering the philosophy of language and the philosophy of mind. PLM also promotes the interaction between formal and foundational semantics. The conference has the status as a PLMsupplementary event.

The conference is funded by a grant from Riksbankens Jubileumsfond and with support from the Department of Philosophy.
