The 15th Szklarska Poreba Workshop, a workshop on the roots of pragmasemantics, will be held at the top of the mountain Szrenica, near Szklarska Poreba, Poland, on 21-24 February 2014. The workshop will address issues related to the semantics and pragmatics of aspect and, more generally, to the representation of meaning, both from a linguistic as well as a philosophical and cognitive perspective.

The central themes of the workshop are "Aspect" and "Meaning In the Brain".
