    GENERAL INFORMATION

    The 13th European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information (ESSLLI'01)
    will take place at the University of Helsinki, Helsinki, Finland, during two
    weeks in August, from August 13 until 24.

    The ESSLLI Summer Schools are organised under the auspices of FoLLI
    (http://www.folli.uva.nl), the European Association for Logic, Language and
    Information.

    The main focus of the European Summer Schools is the interface between
    linguistics, logic and computation. Foundational, introductory and advanced
    courses, workshops and special events cover a wide variety of topics within
    six areas of interest:

      * Logic
      * Language
      * Computation
      * Logic and Language
      * Logic and Computation
      * Language and Computation

    The number of courses offered is over 50. Previous summer schools have been
    highly successful, attracting around 500 students from Europe and elsewhere.
    The school has developed into an important meeting place and forum for
    discussion for students, researchers and IT professionals interested in
    the interdisciplinary study of Logic, Language and Information. In addition
    to courses, workshops and evening lectures there will be a Student Session
    and a social program.
