         Third and Final Call for Course and Workshop Proposals
                              ESSLLI 2015
     27th European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information
               Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona, Spain
                           August 3-14, 2015


1 June 2014: Proposal submission deadline
23 September 2014: Notification
June 2015: Course material due


Proposals for courses and workshops at ESSLLI'2015 are invited in all
areas of Logic, Linguistics and Computing 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 programme 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.

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 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 are targeted primarily to graduate students who wish to
acquire a level of comfort and understanding in the current research of
a field.

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


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 detail.

Proposals must be submitted in PDF format via:

and include all of the following:

a. Personal information for each proposer: Name, affiliation, contact
   address, email, homepage (optional)

b. General proposal information: Title, category

c. Contents information:
     Abstract of up to 150 words
     Motivation and description (up to two pages)
     Tentative outline
     Expected level and prerequisites
     Appropriate references (e.g. textbooks, monographs, proceedings,

d. Practical information:
     Relevant preceding meetings and events, if applicable
     Potential external funding for participants
