			 BEST STUDENT PAPER PRIZE
				 ______________


Papers accepted for presentation at the ESSLLI'97 student session can
be considered for the best student paper prize. It will be sponsored
by the French publisher Adosa.

This prize will consist of :	

 . several books in Logic, Linguistics and/or Computer Science, for a total
 value of 3.000 FF (approximately 470 Ecu) and chosen by the winner among
 editors from the European Union.

 . plus the entire Adosa's collection (in French) of the "Langues naturelles
 et traitement de l'information" ("Natural Language and Information
 Processing") series.

Students who want their paper to be considered for the prize should
submit (at the beginning of the Summer School) three copies of an
extended abstract of their paper (about 1O pages).

The best paper will be selected by the following Committee:

	G. Brewka (Faculty, U. of Leipzig)
	A. Drewery (Chair of the Student Session)
	T. Fruehwirth (Faculty, U. of Munich)
	E. Keenan (Faculty, UCLA)

	L. Moss (Faculty, Indiana University)
	J. Nerbonne (Faculty, U. of Groningen)
	R. Zuber (Chair, U. of Paris)

The Committee will base its decision on the written extended abstract
rather than the oral presentation.

The prize will be awarded during the last ESSLLI party (on Thursday,
August 21). The winner will receive there the Adosa's series. Then,
he will send to Adosa the list of books he/she wants to receive. These
books will be sent to him/her directly.
