 ANNOUNCEMENT OF
 the Ninth European Summer School in
 Logic, Language, and Information
 ESSLLI'97
 to be held in Aix-en-Provence, France
 from August 11 until August 22, 1997
 URL: http://www.lpl.univ-aix.fr/~esslli97

After summerschools in Groningen (1989), Saarbruecken (1990), Leuven
(1991), Colchester (1992), Lisbon (1993), Copenhagen (1994), Barcelona
(1995) and Prague (1996), the ninth European Summer School in Logic,
Language, and Information will be held in Aix-en-Provence, France,
from August 11 until August 22, 1997.

ESSLLI'97 is organized under the auspices of FoLLI, the European
Association for Logic, Language and Information.

Like the other ESSLLI summerschools, this one will have as its main
focus the intersection of the areas of logic, linguistics, and
computation. The programme includes courses, workshops and symposia
covering a variety of topics within six areas of interest: Logic,
Language, Computation, Logic & Computation, Computation & Language,
and Language & Logic.

Courses are given at both introductory and advanced levels.
Introductory courses are designed to familiarize students with new
fields and do not presuppose a particular background knowledge, while
advanced courses are designed to allow participants to acquire more
specialized expertise in areas they are already familiar with.
Workshops are 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.

Besides courses, workshops and symposia, there will also be evening
lectures, in which the most current topics in research in Logic,
Language and Information will be addressed.

As in Prague, a student session will also be organised during the
school. A call for papers will be sent [out] in a few weeks.
Students will be encouraged to submit papers that show creativity,
innovative ideas and promise.

 !!! Several grants will be available. More information soon !!!
