ESSLLI 2001 Student Session


Deadline: February 18, 2001

We are pleased to announce the Student Session of the 13th European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information (ESSLLI 2001) organized by the University of Helsinki under the auspices of the European Association for Logic, Language and Information (FoLLI). ESSLLI 2001 will be held at the University of Helsinki in August 2001. We invite submission of papers for presentation at the ESSLLI 2001 Student Session and for appearance in the proceedings.

PURPOSE: This sixth ESSLLI Student Session will provide, like the other editions, an opportunity for ESSLLI participants who are students to present their own work in progress and get feedback from senior researchers and fellow-students. The ESSLLI Student Session encourages submissions from students at any level, from undergraduates (before completion of the Master Thesis) as well as postgraduates (before completion of the PhD degree). Papers co-authored by non-students will not be accepted. Papers may be accepted for full presentation (30 minutes including 10 minutes of discussion) or for a poster presentation. The accepted papers will be published in the ESSLLI 2001 Student Session proceedings, which will be made available during the summer school.

KLUWER BEST PAPER AWARD: As in previous years, the best paper will be selected by the program committee and will be offered a prize by Kluwer Academic Publishers consisting in 1000 Dfl worth of books.

REQUIREMENTS: The Student Session papers should describe original, unpublished work, completed or in progress that demonstrates insight, creativity, and promise. No previously published papers should be submitted. All topics within the six ESSLLI subject areas (Logic, Language, Computation, Logic & Language, Logic & Computation, Language & Computation) are of interest. An extended abstract of 5 pages in length and a separate identification page must be sent by e-mail to:

kris@coli.uni-sb.de by FEBRUARY 18, 2001.

Please, check the FORMAT REQUIREMENTS. Submissions outside the specified length and formatting requirements may be subject to rejection without review.
