Call for Course and Workshop Proposals
26th European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information
Tuebingen, Germany
August 11-22, 2014

Important Dates:
15 June 2013: Proposal submission deadline
15 September 2013: Notification
1 June 2014: Course material due

Topics and Format:
Proposals for courses and workshops at ESSLLI 2014 are invited in all areas of
Logic, Linguistics and Computing and Information Sciences. Cross-disciplinary
and innovative topics are particularly encouraged.

Each course and workshop will consist of five 90 minute sessions, offered
daily (Monday-Friday) in a single week.  Proposals for two-week courses should
be structured and submitted as two independent one-week courses, e.g. as an
introductory course followed by an advanced one. In such cases, the ESSLLI
program committee reserves the right to accept just one of the two proposals.

All instructional and organizational work at ESSLLI is performed completely on
a voluntary basis, so as to keep participation fees to a minimum.  However,
organizers and instructors have their registration fees waved, and are
reimbursed for travel and accommodation expenses up to a level to be
determined and communicated with the proposal notification.  ESSLLI can only
guarantee reimbursement for at most one course/workshop organizer, and can not
guarantee full reimbursement of travel costs for lecturers or organizers from
outside of Europe.  The ESSLLI organizers would appreciate any help in
controlling the School's expenses by seeking complete coverage of travel and
accommodation expenses from other sources.

Each proposal should fall under one of the following categories.

Fundamental Courses:
Such courses are designed to present the basics of a research area, to people
with no prior knowledge in that area.  They should be of elementary level,
without prerequisites in the course's topic, though possibly assuming a level
of general scientific maturity in the relevant discipline.  They should enable
researchers from related disciplines to develop a level of comfort with the
fundamental concepts and techniques of the course's topic, thereby
contributing to the interdisciplinary nature of our research community.

Introductory Courses:
Introductory courses are central to ESSLLI's mission.  They are intended to
introduce a research field to students, young researchers, and other
non-specialists, and to foster a sound understanding of its basic methods and
techniques. Such courses should enable researchers from related disciplines to
develop some comfort and competence in the topic considered.  Introductory
courses in a cross-disciplinary area may presuppose general knowledge of the
related disciplines.

Advanced Courses:
Advanced courses are targeted primarily to graduate students who wish to
acquire a level of comfort and understanding in the current research of a

Workshops focus on specialized, usually topics of current interest. Workshops
organizers are responsible for soliciting papers and selecting the workshop
program. They are also responsible for publishing proceedings if they decide
to have proceedings.

Proposal Guidelines:
Course and workshop proposals should follow closely the following guidelines
to ensure full consideration.

Each course may have no more than two instructors, and each workshop no more
than two organizers.  All instructors and organizers must possess a PhD or
equivalent degree by the submission deadline.

Course proposals should mention explicitly the intended course
category.  Proposals for introductory courses should indicate the intended
level, for example as it relates to standard textbooks and monographs in the
area.  Proposals for advanced courses should specify the prerequisites in
