The Summer School

The Seventh European Summer School in Logic, Language and
Information will be held at the Biology Faculty of Barcelona
University from August 14th to 25th. The School is organized
under the auspices of the European Foundation of Logic,
Language and Information (Folli), jointly by Universitat de
Barcelona, Universitat Rovira i Virgili, Universitat Autonoma
de Barcelona, and Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya.
The previous Summer Schools took place at Rijks universiteit
Groningen in the Netherlands in 1989, at the Katholieke
Universiteit Leuven in Belgium in 1990, at the Universitat
Saarlandes, Saarbrucken in Germany in 1991, at the
University of Essex Colchester in the United Kingdomin 1992,
at the Faculdade de Letras da Universidade de Lisboa in
Portugal in 1993, and at the Copenhagen Business School in
Denmark in 1994. For these Schools financial support was
derived from a variety of sources, including the Commision
of the European Community, through the ERASMUS programme and
the DG XIII, Research Networks, National Research Councils,
and industrial sponsors. The same kind of support
is expected for the 1995 School.

The main focus of the Summer School is the interface between
logic, linguistics and computation, where it concerns the
modelling of human linguistic and cognitive abilities. The
1995 School programme will include courses, workshops, and
symposia covering a variety of topics within six areas
of interest: Logic, Language, Computation, Logic and
Computation, Computation and Language, Language and Logic.

Courses will be cast at both introductory and advanced levels.
Introductory courses are designed to familiarize students
with new fields and do not presuppose any background knowledge,
while advanced courses are designed to allow participants to
acquire more specialized expertise in areas they are already
familiar with. Workshops will be chaired by an expert in the
field and will provide an opportunity for PhD students and other
young researchers to present their work and gain informed feedback
and useful contacts. Symposia will typically consist of a series
of presentations on a timely topic by people active in the
relevant areas. Both workshops and symposia are intended to
encourage collaboration and cross fertilization of ideas by
stimulatingin-depth discussion of issues which are at the
forefront of current research in the field. There will also be
a series of invited evening lecturers by well-known experts
in their field.
