  Fifteenth European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information
                     August 18-29, 2003, Vienna, Austria



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-2003 is organised under the auspices
of the European Association for Logic, Language and Information

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:


In addition to courses and workshops there will be a Student Session.
A Call for Papers for the Student Session will be distributed

PROPOSAL SUBMISSION: Proposals should be submitted through a web form
that is available through <http://www.esslli.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
		 and prerequisites
   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

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.

FORMAT FOR PROPOSALS: The web-based form for submitting course and
workshop proposals is accessible at
http://www.folli.uva.nl/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 introductory course, or an advanced course?)

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

   * Description (in at most 150 words, describe the
     proposed contents and substantiate timeliness
     and relevance to ESSLLI)

   * 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

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.
