CeLL – the Centre for Logic and Language, at the Institute of Philosophy presents:

Logic and Language 2014 Conference

The Logic and Language Conference is organised every other year by the Institute of Philosophy and the Northern Institute of Philosophy, in turn. The aim of the conference is to showcase cutting edge research in the Philosophy of Logic and Language, and to foster interaction between academics working in these areas both in the UK and abroad. In particular, its aim is to give an opportunity to junior philosophers to interact with more senior colleagues working in the same field.
