>THEMES: As always, the conference will be open to all themes relevant to
>the pragmatics of language in its widest sense as an interdisciplinary
>cognitive, social, and cultural perspective. In addition, there is a
>special theme.
>SPECIAL THEME: Pragmatics and Philosophy
>It is both interesting and scientifically productive for pragmatics to
>revisit and discuss its philosophical starting points and enduring
>presuppositions, as well as its philosophical implications. Various
>philosophical problems may benefit from being discussed in a pragmatic
>perspective, and philosophy itself as a discourse genre is liable to be
>analyzed by a pragmatic approach. The range of themes meant to be covered
>by the special topic "Pragmatics and Philosophy" therefore includes at least:
>• philosophical heritages of pragmatics: Austin, Grice, Searle,
>Wittgenstein, Carnap, pragmatism, phenomenology;
>• philosophical frameworks for pragmatics: speech act theory, neo-Gricean
>and post-Gricean frameworks, theories of meaning as use, theories of
>context, pragmatics and hermeneutics, pragmatics and cultural studies;
>• overlaps between pragmatics and philosophy: the semantics/pragmatics
>interface, indexicals, presupposition, implicature, speech acts,
>propositional attitudes, context logics, contextualist epistemology,
>intentionality and subjectivity, agency, emotions, rhetoric, personal or
>collective identities;
>• pragmatics of the philosophical discourse genre: analysis of
>philosophical discourse, pragmatic approaches to argumentation and
>dialogue, pragmatics and the teaching of philosophy.
>Plenary lectures will include:
>Rukmini BHAYA NAIR (Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi, India),
>Pragmatics, pragmatism & the postcolonial
>Robyn CARSTON (University College London), Pragmatics: From philosophy to
>cognitive science
>Steven DAVIS (Carleton University, Ottawa), Demonstratives and understanding

>And there will be a plenary session organized by:
>Paolo BOUQUET (Univ. of Trento) & Oliviero STOCK (IRST), Computational
>pragmatics. Guest speaker: Wolfgang WAHLSTER (Universität des Saarlandes).
>Abstracts Deadline: 1 November 2004
>Two types of paper proposals are invited:
>1. For single-paper presentations to be included in regular lecture
>sessions (20-minute presentations followed by 5 minutes for discussion and
>allowing 5 minutes for switching between sessions). Author who wish to
>present their paper as a poster, may choose to do so.
>2. For panels or multi-paper sessions. Panels take the form of a series of
>closely related lectures on a specific topic. They may consist of one, two
>or three units of 120 minutes. Within each panel unit an average of four
>20-minute presentations are given consecutively; the rest of the period
>may be taken up by an introduction, open discussion, comments by a
>discussant or discussants, or any combination of these. Panels are
>composed of contributions invited by panel organizers, combined with
>individually submitted papers when judged appropriate by the Conference
>Committee in consultation with the panel organizers. Typically, written
>versions or extensive outlines of all panel contributions should be
>available to the other contributors before the conference in order to
>facilitate discussion.
>Note that in addition to a panel abstract (to be submitted by the panel
>organizers), abstracts for all panel contributions, even when invited
>directly by panel organizers, have to be sent in individually (following
>the single-paper presentations option) and will be reviewed individually
>and anonymously.
