We invite abstract submissions for oral as well as poster presentations that address semantic change on the basis of formal theories of meaning, including case studies, studies of trends as well as general formal theories of meaning change and corpus based research. We also welcome research at the interfaces with pragmatics, syntax and other areas, as long as it makes a contribution to the area of formal diachronic semantics. We also welcome papers that address methodological questions in the field.
