Message 2: NASSLLI04 Call for Proposals

Date: Tue, 4 Nov 2003 09:12:28 -0800
From: Marcus Kracht <>
Subject: NASSLLI04 Call for Proposals


June 21-25, UCLA, Los Angeles

(North American Summer School in Logic, Language and Information 2004)


The third NASSLLI (after a successful start with NASSLLI02 in Stanford
and NASSLLI03 in Bloomington) will be held at UCLA, June 21 - 25,
2004. The summer school will consist of a number of courses and
workshops, selected on the basis of the proposals. Proposals are
invited that present interdisciplinary work between the areas of
logic, linguistics, computer science, philosophy and artificial
intelligence, though work in just one area is within the scope of the
summer school if it can be applied in other fields.

Submission Details:
Submissions should indicate
1) person(s) and affiliation 
2) type of event (one week course or workshop, 2 hours a day) 
3) an outline of the course up to 500 words 
4) an indication of whether special equipment is needed to
	teach that course (beamer, computer ...)
5) a statement about the instructor's experience in teaching 
	in interdisciplinary settings
6) expected costs (whether you want to be paid hotel and/or travel, 
	or whether you are able to find funding)

Final Material:
We expect material for the actual courses at least *one month* ahead
of the conference if harcopies of any material are to be made
available by us.

Financial Details:
A course may be taught by one or two persons. Conference fees are
waived for all instructors. However, we are only able to pay for the
full travel and expenses of one instructor per course. If two persons
are lecturing, they may share a lump sum paid for both. Workshops are
more complicated, and a proposal for a workshop should include a plan
to obtain some outside funcing for the speakers.

Important Note:
To give us an idea about the number of submissions, we would like you
to email us within two weeks in case you are interested in submitting
a proposal. This will not commit you to actually submit one.

Deadline for submission: 

Program Committee:
Dominique Sportiche, UCLA, chair
Mai Gehrke, New Mexico State University
John Horty, University of Maryland
Mark Johnson, Brown University
Phokion Kolaitis, UC Santa Cruz
