 13th European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information
 ESSLLI 2001

 University of Helsinki
 August 13-24, 2001

		** Early registration deadline: 30 April 2001 **


The 13th European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information
(ESSLLI'01) takes place at the University of Helsinki, Helsinki, Finland,
during two weeks in August, from August 13 until 24.

The ESSLLI Summer Schools are organised under the auspices of FoLLI
(, the European Association for Logic, Language
and Information.

The main focus of the Summer School is the interface between linguistics,
logic and computation. Foundational, introductory and advanced courses,
workshops and special events cover a wide variety of topics within six
areas of interest:

 * Logic
 * Language
 * Computation
 * Logic and Language
 * Logic and Computation
 * Language and Computation

The number of courses offered is over 50. Previous summer schools have
been highly successful, attracting around 500 students from Europe and
elsewhere. The school has developed into an important meeting place and
forum for discussion for students, researchers and IT professionals
interested in the interdisciplinary study of Logic, Language and
Information. In addition to courses, workshops and evening lectures, there
will be a Student Session and a social program.


The full scientific program can be found at our home page. Evening
Lectures are given by

 * Edward L. Keenan "Spinoza Lecture" (UCLA)
 * Yannis Moschovakis "Vienna Circle Lecture" (UCLA)
 * Keith Devlin (Saint Mary's College, California)
 * Jaakko Hintikka (Boston & Helsinki)
