Formal Semantics of Concepts, Space, and Locatives

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.
