Subject: ESSLLI2003 Call for Proposals
Fifteenth European Summer School in Logic, Language and
August 18-29, 2003, Vienna, Austria
CALL FOR COURSE and WORKSHOP PROPOSALS
The main focus of the European Summer Schools in Logic, Language and
Information is on the interface between linguistics, logic and
computation. Foundational, introductory and advanced courses together with
workshops cover a wide variety of topics within the three areas of
interest: Language and Computation, Language and Logic, and Logic and
Previous summer schools have been highly successful, attracting up to 500
students from Europe and elsewhere. The school has developed into an
important meeting place and forum for discussion for students and
researchers interested in the interdisciplinary study of Logic, Language
and Information. ESSLLI-2003 is organised under the auspices of the
European Association for Logic, Language and Information (FoLLI).
The ESSLLI-2003 Programme Committee invites proposals for foundational,
introductory, and advanced courses, and for workshops for the 15th annual
Summer School on a wide range of timely topics that have demonstrated their
relevance in the following fields:
LANGUAGE & COMPUTATION
LANGUAGE & LOGIC
LOGIC & COMPUTATION
In addition to courses and workshops there will be a Student Session. A
Call for Papers for the Student Session will be distributed separately.
PROPOSAL SUBMISSION: Proposals should be submitted through a web form that
will shortly be available through <http://www.folli.org>.
All proposals should be submitted no later than Wednesday July 17,
2002. Authors of proposals will be notified of the committee's decision no
later than Wednesday September 18, 2002. Proposers should follow the
guidelines below while preparing their submissions; proposals that deviate
can not be considered.
GUIDELINES FOR SUBMISSION: Anyone interested in lecturing or organising a
workshop during ESSLLI-2003, please read the following information carefully.
ALL COURSES: Courses are taught by 1 or max. 2 lecturers. They typically
consist of five sessions (a one-week course) or ten sessions (a two-week
course). Each session lasts 90 minutes.
Timetable for Course Proposal Submission:
Jul 17, 2002: Proposal Submission Deadline
Sep 18, 2002: Notification
Nov 15, 2002: Deadline for receipt of title, abstract,
lecturer(s) information, course description
Jun 2, 2003: Deadline for receipt of camera-ready course
FOUNDATIONAL COURSES: These are really elementary courses not assuming any
background knowledge. They are intended for people to get acquainted with
the problems and techniques of areas new to them. Ideally, they should
allow researchers from other fields to acquire the key competences of
neighbouring disciplines, thus encouraging the development of a truly
interdisciplinary research community. Foundational courses may presuppose
some experience with scientific methods in general, so as to be able to
concentrate on the issues that are germane to the area of the course.
INTRODUCTORY COURSES: Introductory courses are central to the activities of
the Summer School. They are intended to equip students and young
researchers with a good understanding of a field's basic methods and
techniques. Introductory courses in, for instance, Language and
Computation, can build on some knowledge of the component fields; e.g., an
introductory course in computational linguistics should address an audience
which is familiar with the basics of linguistics and computation.
Proposals for introductory courses should indicate the level of the course
as compared to standard texts in the area (if available).
ADVANCED COURSES: Advanced courses should be pitched at an audience of
advanced Masters or PhD students. Proposals for advanced courses should
specify the prerequisites in some detail.
WORKSHOPS: The aim of the workshops is to provide a forum for advanced
Ph.D. students and other researchers to present and discuss their work. A
workshop has a theme. At most one organiser is paid. The organisers
should be specialists in the theme of the workshop and give a general
introduction in the first session. They are also responsible for the
programme of the workshop, i.e., for finding speakers.
Each workshop organiser will be responsible for producing a Call for Papers
for the workshop by November 15, 2002. The call must make it clear that
the workshop is open to all members of the LLI community. It should also
note that all workshop contributors must register for the Summer School.
A workshop consists of five sessions (a one-week workshop). Sessions are
normally 90 minutes.
Timetable for Workshop Proposal Submissions

FORMAT FOR PROPOSALS: The web-based form for submitting course and workshop
proposals is accessible at
<http://www.esslli.org/2003/submission.html>. You will be required to
submit the following information:
* Name (name(s) of proposed lecturer(s)/organiser)
* Address (contact addresses of proposed
where possible, please include phone and fax numbers)
* Title (title of proposed course/workshop)
* Type (is this a workshop, a foundational course, an
course, or an advanced course?)
* Section (does your proposal fit in Language &
Language & Logic or Logic & Computation? name only one)
* Description (in at most 150 words, describe the
proposed contents and
substantiate timeliness and relevance to
* External funding (will you be able to find external
help fund your travel and accommodation expenses? if
* Further particulars (any further information that is
the above guidelines should be included here)
FINANCIAL ASPECTS: Prospective lecturers and workshop organisers should be
aware that all teaching and organising at the summer schools is done on a
voluntary basis in order to keep the participants fees as low as
possible. Lecturers and organisers are not paid for their contribution,
but are reimbursed for travel and accommodation. Please note the
following: In case a course is to be taught by two lecturers, a lump sum is
paid to cover travel and accommodation expenses. The splitting of the sum
is up to the lecturers. However, please note that the organisers highly
appreciate it if, whenever possible, lecturers and workshop organisers find
alternative funding to cover travel and accommodation expenses.
Workshop speakers are required to register for the Summer School; however,
workshop speakers will be able to register at a reduced rate to be
determined by the Organising Committee.
Finally, it should be stressed that while proposals from all over the world
are welcomed, the Summer School can in general guarantee only to reimburse
travel costs for travel from destinations within Europe to
Vienna. Exceptions will be made depending on the financial situation.
