Conference: AC2022

The Amsterdam Colloquia aim to bring together linguists, philosophers, logicians, cognitive scientists and computer scientists who share an interest in the formal study of the semantics and pragmatics of natural and formal languages.

The 2022 edition will be held at the University of Amsterdam on 19–21 December, 2022

Location: Amsterdam Science Park

The AC2022 will take place on location in Amsterdam. We prefer everyone to come in person, since conferences are a great opportunity to come together. However, given the present circumstances, we accept that this is not always possible, so we will accommodate remote presentations on request. Zoom links will be available for those who would like to follow along remotely.
