LENLS is an annual international conference on formal linguistics (i.e., 
syntax, semantics and pragmatics), computational linguistics, the 
philosophy of language, and related fields, including but not limited to 
the following:

- Formal syntax, semantics and pragmatics of natural language
- Model-theoretic and/or proof-theoretic semantics of natural language
- Computational approaches to semantics and pragmatics
- Nonclassical logic and its relation to natural language
  (e.g. substructural, fuzzy, categorical, and topological logic)
- Formal philosophy of language
- Scientific methodology and/or experimental design in linguistics

LENLS20 is scheduled to take place in a in-person format (with a physical 
presence in Osaka),
but with a limited option for a virtual presence via zoom.


Authors are required to choose from one of the following two submission 
categories: [Abstract Only] and [Abstract+Full Paper].  For both 
categories, authors must submit abstracts (anonymous, up to 4 pages 
including figures and references, A4 size, 12-point font) on original, 
unpublished research.  Abstracts must be submitted electronically in PDF 


Upon acceptance, authors (both categories) are expected to submit extended 
abstracts (up to 5 pages) before the workshop.  Note that abstracts 
submitted to the [Abstract+Full Paper] category may be accepted in the 
[Abstract Only] category (but not vice versa).   The proceedings of the 
workshop will be made available online, including extended abstracts (both 

Authors submitting to the [Abstract+Full Paper] category are required to

behavior, the conference organisers may take any action they deem 
appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the 
conference without a refund. If you experience harassment, notice that
