Call for Participation & Papers

Description

The workshop provides an overview of formal semantics and its applications.
In addition, it explores applications of formal semantic and topological
tools to spatial concepts. After an advanced introduction, formal semantic
modelling in spatial concepts will be discussed. The workshop will conclude
with an overview of some formal representations of spatial relations in
Baltic languages.

Audience: graduate students and all interested academics.

We also invite contributed talks covering some of the topics mentioned
above.
