Call for papers

The Center for Theoretical Linguistics at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and the Spanish network on Meaning and Grammar are hosting the 23rd Sinn und Bedeutung (SuB) conference, taking place on September 5-7, 2018. SuB has in recent years emerged as one of the biggest venues for formal semantics and pragmatics representing the full breadth of the field, and we aim to maintain this tradition.

We invite abstract submissions on topics pertaining to natural language semantics, pragmatics, lexical semantics, the syntax-semantics interface, psycholinguistic and neurolinguistic studies related to meaning, and the philosophy of language.

All sessions of SuB will take place at the Bellaterra campus of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, which is easy to reach by train from the center of Barcelona.

Talks will be 45 (35+10) minutes in length. There will also be a poster session. Poster presenters will have the opportunity to give short ‘lightning talks’ to introduce their topic to the audience.

Abstracts should contain original research that, at the time of submission, has neither been published nor accepted for publication. One person can submit at most one abstract as sole author and one as co-author or two co-authored abstracts. Authors will be asked to specify at the time of submission whether they wish their abstract to be considered for a talk and/or a poster.

Submissions should be anonymous and should not reveal the identities of the authors in any form. Abstracts must not exceed two pages (letter size or A4 paper, 2.5cm or 1 inch margins on all sides, 12 point font), including examples and references. Abstracts must be submitted electronically in PDF format via EasyChair until March 12, 2018:
