The third Semantic Content Workshop will be held 4-6 November 2011

4 invited speakers, 8 submitted papers and the general discussion will be contributing to the debate about: how semantic contents should be construed, which theoretical purposes they serve, and how theories that invoke semantic contents should deal with the phenomena of context dependence.

Those who wish to take part should get in touch with Paco Murcia (logos@pcb.ub.es). Registration is free, but you have to let us know that you are coming, as places are limited.
