Midwest Workshop on Semantics

Call for Papers

Presentations: We welcome work that is sufficiently developed for public presentation, but that has not already been submitted for publication or presented at a major conference. Presentations will be 30 minutes long, with 10-15 minutes for questions, depending on the number of participants. Both faculty and students are invited to participate, and graduate students are especially encouraged to present their work.

Abstracts: Those interested in participating in the workshop are invited to submit a two page abstract of their work. Authors are limited to one singly or doubly authored abstract. Our hope is that everyone who wants to present will have an opportunity to do so, but if time constraints make this impossible then talks will be selected based on the quality and originality of the work, its degree of completeness, and the areas of research represented at the workshop. In addition, although both faculty and students are encouraged to participate, student presentations will be given priority, all other things being equal.

Deadline: Friday, September 1 5:00 p.m. CST. Presenters will be notified no later than Monday, September 11.

Submission: Please email a pdf version of your abstract to Chris Kennedy. The subject heading of your email should read 'Midwest Workshop on Semantics', and the following contact information should be included in the body of the e-mail message: author name(s), affiliation(s), primary e-mail address, and a phone number where you are best reached.

Organizers: Kristen Syrett (Northwestern), Osamu Sawada (Chicago), Chris Kennedy (University of Chicago), Stefan Kaufmann (Northwestern)
