	 International Summer School on Computational Logic
			 ISCL 2000
		 Maratea (Italy), September 3-8


The school is addressed to young researchers and PhD students, as well
as to university and industry researchers. Its main goal is to give
the participants an insight of some relevant research lines in
Computational Logic.


The school consists of six lectures on different topics, including
theoretical foundations and practical perspectives. Each lecture
covers one topic from basic notions to more advanced issues. PhD
students may ask to have a proficiency final exam at the end of the
school. The lecturers and the topics are the following:

- Moreno Falaschi (University of Udine, Italy). Optimization of
 declarative languages.

- Thom Fruehwirth (LMU Munich, Germany). Constraint Programming.

- Peter Lee (Carnegie Mellon University, USA). Proof Carrying Code.

- Dale Miller (The Pennsylvania State University, USA). A Logic for
 Reasoning about Logic Specifications.

- Paul Tarau (University of North Texas, USA). Logic Programming
 based Internet Technologies.

- Frits Vaandrager (University of Nijmegen, The Netherlands).
 Verification of timed and hybrid systems.


The lectures will be given in the congress center of Hotel Villa del
Mare, Acquafredda di Maratea (Basilicata, Italy) which is 6 km away
from Maratea. The hotel is in a beautiful position in front of the
sea, with a swimming pool, a lift to its private beach, cinema-club
and many other facilities. Maratea is an ancient city on the Gulf of
Policastro, founded during the Greek period. It is the only portion
of Lucania on the Tyrrhenian sea, situated in one of the most
beautiful parts of the Italian southern coast.

Message 2: Latin Software for self-instruction

Subject: Latin Software for self-instruction

Anyone who was interested last summer in The Caesar Machine 
(freeware Latin hypertext reader for De Bello Gallico, I -- get an 
English definition for each word by pressing a key) might also be 
interested in The Caesar Machine 2: this is a proper Windows 
version of the teaching machine, written in Visual Basic, in which 
you just mouse-click on a word in the text and the dictionary entry 
appears in English below the text. This also is freeware, 
downloads as a zip file = 1.8 Mb, runs under Windows 95/98/NT, 
and is available at:

Caesar Machine 2 incorporates search routines for the body of the 
text and the body of the dictionary, as well as for dictionary entries. 
The original Caesar Machine (for DOS, also runs under Windows) 
is still available at the same place, with new corrigenda 
incorporated into the text and dictionary files.
