The purpose of the Semantics and Philosophy in Europe (SPE) colloquia is to provide a forum for presenting research in the interface between linguistic semantics and various areas of philosophy (philosophy of language, philosophy of mind/cognition, metaphysics etc.). Previous colloquia have taken place place in Paris (SPE1, 2008 and SPE3, 2010), London (SPE2, 2009), Bochum (SPE4, 2011), Turin (SPE5, 2012), St.Peterburg (SPE6, 2013), Berlin (SPE7, 2014), and Cambridge (SPE8, 2016). This year’s Semantics and Philosophy in Europe Colloquium focuses on ontology and consists in two special sessions only:
- Ontology and Generative Grammar
- Applied Ontology and Natural Language.
