30 April 2004 Camera-ready copies of papers (extended)
31 May  2004 Workshop (fixed)


 Recently, one of the main streams of the formal semantics of natural language and logic has been developing "dynamic semantics." The aim of this workshop is to explore the theory and application of"dynamic semantics"to natural language. Areas of exploration will include the application of "dynamic semantics" to natural language semantics, programming languages, natural language processing, and other areas of information engineering. The accepted papers will be published by Springer-Verlag in "Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence."
