Meeting Description:

The Student Session of the 24th European Summer School in Logic, Language, and Information (ESSLLI) will take place in Opole, Poland on August 6-17, 2012. This is an excellent opportunity to receive valuable feedback from expert readers and to present your work to a diverse audience.

ESSLLI 2012 will be held in Opole, Poland, and will feature a wide range of foundational and advanced courses and workshops in all areas of Logic, Language, and Computation. Consult the main ESSLLI website for further information:


Call for Papers:

We invite submissions of original, unpublished work from students in any area at the intersection of Logic & Language, Language & Computation, or Logic & Computation. Submissions will be reviewed by several experts in the field, and accepted papers will be presented orally or as posters and will appear in the student session proceedings.

Deadline for submissions: March 20, 2012

Springer Prizes for Best Paper and Best Poster:

In 2012, Springer has again continued its generous support for the Student Session by offering 1000 euros in prizes. These include 500 euros for Best Paper and 500 euros for Best Poster. The prizes are awarded best on the reviews of the submission as well as the oral presentation.

Instructions for Authors:

Authors must be students, i.e., may not have received the Ph.D. degree before August 2012. All submissions must be in PDF format and be submitted to the conference EasyChair website:


Submissions may be singly or jointly authored. No one may submit more than one singly and one jointly authored paper.

There are two types of papers. Long papers of up to 8 pages will be considered for both oral presentation and the poster session. Short papers of up to 4 pages will be considered as submissions for the poster session.

Submissions must be anonymous, without any identifying information, and must be must be received by March 20, 2012.

Accepted papers will eventually have to be written in LaTeX in standard LNCS format; the easiest thing is to do this in advance by using the Springer class files for LaTeX2e, which can be downloaded from our website.
