                       THE ESSLLI'99 STUDENT SESSION
                  August 9-20, 1999, Utrecht, The Netherlands
                        Deadline : March 15th, 1999


We are pleased to announce the Student Session of the 11th European Summer
School in Logic, Language and Information (ESSLLI'99) organized by the
University of Utrecht under the auspices of the European Association for
Language, Logic and Information (FOLLI) and located at the University of
Utrecht in August 1999. We will welcome submission of papers for
presentation at the ESSLLI'99 Student Session and appearance in the

This is going to be the fourth ESSLLI Student Session and it 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 their
colleagues and fellow-students. It is desired that papers presenting
creative and innovative ideas will be submitted.
The ESSLLI'99 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. We will not accept
papers co-authored by non-students.
As in the previous editions, the ESSLLI'99 Student Session will consist of
paper presentations. The ESSLLI'99 Student Session has its own timeslot in
the school's schedule: 60 minutes every day for two weeks, provided that a
sufficient number of good quality papers is accepted. Each presentation
will last 30 minutes (including 10 minutes of discussion).

The Student Session papers should describe original, unpublished work,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. Papers will
cover topics within the six ESSLLI subject areas (Logic, Linguistics,
Computation, Logic&Linguistics, Logic&Computation,
The accepted papers will be published in the ESSLLI'99 Student Session
proceedings, which will be made available during ESSLLI'99, together with
the readers of the courses.

Student authors should submit an anonymous extended abstract headed by the
paper title, not to exceed 5 pages of length exclusive of references and a
separate identification page (see below). Note that the length of the full
papers will not be allowed to exceed 10 pages.
Since reviewing will be blind, the body of the abstract should omit author
names and addresses. Furthermore, self-references that reveal the author's
identity (e.g., " We previously showed (Smith, 1991)... ") should be
avoided. It is possible to use instead references like " Smith (1991)
previously showed...".
To identify each paper, a separate identification page should be supplied
containing the paper's title, the name(s) of the author(s), the
author(s)s'affiliation and complete address(s) a short (5 lines) summary
and a specification of the subject area to which the paper belongs. The
subject areas considered are: Logic, Linguistics, Computation,
Logic&Linguistics, Logic&Computation, and Linguistics & Computation.

The student authors should submit their papers electronically to:

amalia at liia.u-strasbg.fr
amalia at thor.infoiasi.ro

For any submission a plain ASCII text version of the identification page
should be sent separately by email, using the following format:

Title: <title>
Author: <name of the first author>
Address: <affiliation and address of first author>
Author: <name of the last author>
Address: <affiliation and address of last author>
Short summary (5 lines): <summary>
Subject area (one of):
