E. W. Beth Dissertation Prize: 2013 call for nominations

Since 2002, FoLLI (the Association for Logic, Language, and Information, awards the E.W. Beth Dissertation
Prize to outstanding dissertations in the fields of Logic, Language, and
Information. We invite submissions for the best dissertation which
resulted in a Ph.D. degree in the year 2012. The dissertations will be
judged on technical depth and strength, originality, and impact made in
at least two of three fields of Logic, Language, and
Computation. Interdisciplinarity is an important feature of the theses
competing for the E.W. Beth Dissertation Prize.

Who qualifies.

Nominations of candidates are admitted who were awarded a Ph.D. degree
in the areas of Logic, Language, or Information between January 1st,
2012 and December 31st, 2012. There is no restriction on the nationality
of the candidate or the university where the Ph.D. was granted. After a
careful consideration, FoLLI has decided to accept only dissertations
written in English. Dissertations produced in 2012 but not written in
English or not translated will be allowed for submission, after
translation, also with the call next year (for dissertations defended in
2013). The present call for nominations for the E.W. Beth Disertation
Award 2013 will also accept nominations of full English translations of
theses originally written in another language than English and defended
in 2011 or 2012.


The prize consists of:

- a certificate

- a donation of 2500 euros provided by the E.W. Beth Foundation

- an invitation to submit the thesis (or a revised version of it) to the
  FoLLI Publications on Logic, Language and Information (Springer). For
  further information on this series see the FoLLI site.

are not admitted: each nomination must be sponsored by the thesis

and significance of the dissertation and state when the degree was

a referee not affiliated with the academic institution that awarded the
