It is with great pleasure that we announce the upcoming Semantics and
Philosophy in Europe 4 conference. The conference will feature expert
tutorials, symposia, roundtables, and a colloquium on the following topics:

A) The Semantics and Pragmatics of Quotation
B) The Semantics of Action Sentences
C) The Semantics and Epistemology of Mental State Ascriptions

The purpose of the SPE workshops is to enhance the dialogue between
linguists and philosophers and to provide a new forum for presenting
research in the interface between linguistic semantics and the related areas
of philosophy (philosophy of language, logic, philosophy of mind,
metaphysics, philosophy of mathematics, epistemology) . SPE takes place
annually in different European cities. The previous meetings took place in
Paris (SPE1, 2008), London (SPE2, 2009), and Paris (SPE3, 2010).

Submissions of abstracts (650 words including references) are invited for 30
min talks or poster presentations on each of the three themes of the
conference or related topics. Submissions will be accepted via the
conference website until 15 June, 2011.
