The Fifth

INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON
MALAY / INDONESIAN LINGUISTICS

is now scheduled for

16 - 17 June 2001
Leipzig, Germany

Persons wishing to present a paper at the symposium are invited to
submit a one-page abstract, by regular mail, email, or fax, to Uri
Tadmor, at any of the following addresses:

PKBB, Unika Atma Jaya, Jl. Sudirman 51, Jakarta 12930, Indonesia
email: uricbn.net.id
fax: 62-21-571-9560

Deadline for submission of abstracts: 15 March 2001

Early submission procedure:
Abstracts may be submitted right away, or at any time before the 15
March deadline. Persons submitting their abstracts early will be
notified immediately whether their paper has been accepted for
presentation at the symposium, and, in case of acceptance, will
immediately be sent an official letter of invitation. (The early
submission procedure is designed to make it easier for some participants
to apply for funding and leave.)

ooo

Papers to be presented at the symposium should be concerned with the
Malay / Indonesian language in any of its varieties. In addition to the
standardized versions of Bahasa Melayu and Bahasa Indonesia, papers are
particularly welcome dealing with non-canonical varieties such as
Peranakan Malay, Bazaar Malay, and regional dialects of Malay and
Indonesian. Papers may be in any of the subfields of linguistics, and
may represent variegated approaches and diverse theoretical persuasions.
Presentations at the symposium will be delivered in English.

GENERAL INFORMATION:
Games have been utilized within logic for a variety of different
purposes such as semantic evaluation games, model comparison
games, and proof games. On the other hand, logic has become
increasingly important in game theory, in particular for the
epistemic foundation of game-theoretic solution concepts. As the
TARK (http://www.tark.org) and LOFT 
(http://www.econ.ucdavis.edu/faculty/bonanno/loft4.html) conferences show, 
interaction between logic and game theory has become more diverse in
recent years, exploring game logics, the use of game-theory in
multi-agent systems, game-theoretic accounts of natural language
phenomena, and the role of language in defining preferences.

The workshop is part of the 13th European Summer School in Logic,
Language and Information (ESSLLI) which takes place at the
University of Helsinki from August 13 until August 24, 2001
(http://www.helsinki.fi/esslli). The workshop aims to provide a
forum for advanced Ph.D. students and other researchers from
game theory and logic to present their research on (1) game-
theoretic techniques applied to logic, and (2) logical models or
analyses of games and game-theoretic problems. We specifically
invite presentations in any of the following areas:

1) Logical analysis of games, e.g. modeling knowledge, belief,
 and information flow in games; applications of epistemic and
 dynamic logic to games

2) Logic games, e.g. model comparison games, semantic evaluation
 games, Independence-friendly logic

3) Game logics, e.g. extensions of program logics and modal logics
 to investigate the structure of games in general

4) The role of language and logical definability in games,
 and connections between natural language and games generally

5) Logical approaches to multi-agent systems with a special focus
 on game-theoretic aspects

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES:
Papers should not exceed 15 pages in length. A postscript or pdf
version of the paper should be submitted by e-mail to BOTH
organizers before the deadline given below. Note that all workshop
contributors must register for the summer school.
