      Fourteenth European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information
                                  ESSLLI-2002
                       August 4-17, 2002, Trento, Italy

    %%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

                       THIRD CALL FOR PROPOSALS
                       ------------------------

              **** Deadline for submission: 22 July 2001 *****

    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 Computation.

    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-2002 is organised under the auspices
    of the European Association for Logic, Language and Information
    (FoLLI).

    The ESSLLI-2002 Programme Committee invites proposals for foundational,
    introductory, and advanced courses, and for workshops for the 14th annual
    Summer School on a wide range of topics 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 located
    at <http://www.folli.uva.nl/Esslli/2002/submission.html>

    All proposals should be submitted no later than July 22, 2001.
    Authors of proposals will be notified of the committee's decision no
    later than September 17, 2001. 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-2002, 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 22, 2001: Proposal Submission Deadline
       Sep 17, 2001: Notification
       Nov 15, 2001: Deadline for receipt of title, abstract, lecturer(s)
                     information, course description and prerequisites
       Jun 1, 2002: Deadline for receipt of camera-ready course material

    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.

    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, 2001. 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) or ten
    sessions (a two-week workshop). Sessions are normally 90 minutes.

    FORMAT FOR PROPOSALS:
    The web-based form for submitting course and workshop proposals is accessible
    at <http://www.folli.uva.nl/Esslli/2002/submission.html>. You will be required
    to submit the following information:

       * Name (name(s) of proposed lecturer(s)/organiser)

       * Address (contact addresses of proposed lecturer(s)/organiser;
         where possible, please include phone and fax numbers)

       * Title (title of proposed course/workshop)

       * Type (is this a workshop, a foundational course, an introductory
         course, or an advanced course?)

       * Section (does your proposal fit in Language & Computation,
         Language & Logic or Logic & Computation? name only one)

       * Description (describe the proposed contents in at most 150 words)

       * External funding (will you be able to find external funding to
         help fund your travel and accommodation expenses? if so, how?)

       * Further particulars (any further information that is required by
         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
    Trento. Exceptions will be made depending on the financial situation.
