Ivano Ciardelli is Assistant Professor at the Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy at Ludwig-Maximilian University. He conducts research in both logic and natural language semantics. Within logic, his work is devoted to
bringing out the importance of questions as tools for inference, and to the mathematical investigation of logic extended with questions. Within linguistics, he works mostly on the semantics of conditionals, questions, connectives, modals, and imperatives. He has published on these topics in various journals, including Synthese, Linguistics and Philosophy, Journal of Philosophical Logic, and Natural Language Semantics.
Jeroen Groenendijk is Emeritus Professor in the Philosophy Department and the Institute for Logic, Language, and Computation at the University of Amsterdam. His main research fields are logic and philosophy of language, in particular formal semantics and
pragmatics. He focuses primarily on the semantics and pragmatics of questions and answers and dynamic semantics and his work has appeared in journals and edited volumes such as Linguistics and Philosophy, The Handbook of Logic and Language, and The Handbook of Contemporary Semantic Theory, among others.
Floris Roelofsen is Associate Professor at the Institute for Logic, Language, and Computation at the University of Amsterdam. His main areas of research are formal semantics and pragmatics and the syntax-semantics interface. He has worked on the semantics of questions, modals, quantifiers, disjunction, negation, and anaphora, as well as foundational issues in semantics and pragmatics. His work has been published in journals such as Language, Linguistics and Philosophy, Semantics and Pragmatics, Natural Language Semantics, Journal of Semantics, Linguistic Inquiry, and Journal of Philosophical Logic.
