The semantics lab, headed by Kyle Rawlins, is a forum for research in semantics and related fields.
The semantics lab’s physical space in Krieger 105 is a resource for doing both computational and experimental work in semantics. The lab space has a testing room, a meeting room, and a common area with computers. Keys are available for affiliated graduate students as well as undergraduate RAs; contact Kyle for more information.
The semantics lab has regular weekly meetings during the semester, and somewhat less regularly at other times. These lab meetings provide a space for participants to discuss their research as well as others’, in semantics, pragmatics, syntax, and related fields. We often have co-run seminars with the Van Durme lab in CS, or the Textual Choreography group. In F2015, we are jointly running a seminar on computational lexical semantics, organizers are: Kyle Rawlins, Ben Van Durme, Aaron Steven White.
If you’re interested in hearing about semantics lab-related events, you can join the semlab mailing list. This is primarily an announcement list, not a discussion list.
