 Eleventh European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information
 ESSLLI-99
 August 1999, Utrecht, The Netherlands

 FIRST CALL FOR PROPOSALS

The main focus of the European Summer Schools in Logic, Language and
Information is the interface between linguistics, logic and computation.
Foundational, introductory and advanced courses together with workshops 
cover a wide variety of topics within six areas of interest: Logic,
Computation, Language, Logic and Computation, Computation and Language,
Language and Logic. Previous summer schools have been highly successful,
attracting around 500 students from Europe and elsewhere. The school has
developed into an important meeting place and forum for discussion for
students and researchers interested in the interdisciplinary study of
Logic, Language and Information. ESSLLI-99 is organized under the auspices
of the European Association for Logic, Language and Information (FoLLI).

The ESSLLI-99 Programme Committee invites proposals for foundational, 
introductory, and advanced courses, and for workshops for the 11th annual 
Summer School on a wide range of topics in the following fields:

 Logic Language Computation
 Language and Logic Logic and Computation Language and Computation

In addition to courses and workshops there will be a Student Session. 
A Call for Papers for the Student Session will be distributed separately.

The Programme Committee welcomes proposals in all of the above areas.


PROPOSAL SUBMISSION:
All proposals (subjset: ESSLLI-99) should be submitted by electronic mail 
to the program chair, at wansingrz.uni-leipzig.de, in plain ASCII text as 
soon as possible, but no later than June 15, 1998. Authors of proposals will 
be notified of the committee's decision no later than September 1, 1998. 
Proposers should follow the guidelines below while preparing their submissions; 
proposals that deviate substantially will not be considered.

GUIDELINES FOR SUBMISSION:
Anyone interested in lecturing or organizing a workshop during ESSLLI-99, 
please read the following information carefully.


FOUNDATIONAL COURSES: These are really elementary courses not assuming any 
background knowledge. The number of foundational courses will be 4-6. 

Foundational courses are taught by 1 or max. 2 lecturers. They consist of
five sessions (a one-week course) or ten sessions (a two-week course) each
session lasts 90 minutes.

 Timetable for Foundational Course Proposal Submission

 Jun 15, 98: Proposal Submission Deadlines
 Sep 1, 98: Notification
 Nov 15, 98: Deadline for receipt of title, abstract, lecturer(s)
 information, course description and prerequisites
 Jun 1, 99: Deadline for receipt of camera-ready course material


INTRODUCTORY COURSES: Introductory courses are central to the activities of
the Summer School. They are intended to equip students and young
researchers with a good understanding of a field's basic methods and
techniques, and to allow experienced researchers from other fields to
acquire the key competences of neighboring disciplines, thus encouraging
the development of a truly interdisciplinary research community. The
introductory courses in the three basic disciplines should provide
introductions to the field for non-specialists (an introductory course on
logic, for instance, should address linguists and computer scientists, not
logicians). Introductory courses in the interdisciplinary fields, on the
other hand, can build on knowledge of the respective fields (an
introductory course in computational linguistics should address an audience
which is familiar with the basics of linguistics and computation).

Introductory courses are taught by 1 or max. 2 lecturers. They consist of
five sessions (a one-week course) or ten sessions (a two-week course) each
session lasts 90 minutes.

Proposals for introductory courses should indicate the level of the course
as compared to standard texts in the area. For ease of reference a list of
standard texts will be made available electronically.

 Timetable for Introductory Course Proposal Submission

ADVANCED COURSES: Advanced courses should be pitched at an audience of
advanced Masters or PhD students. Proposals for advanced courses should
specify the prerequisites in some detail.

Advanced courses are taught by 1 or max. 2 lecturers. They consist of
five sessions (a one-week course) or ten sessions (a two-week course) each
session lasts 90 minutes.

 Timetable for Advanced Course Proposal Submissions

 Jun 15, 98: Proposal Submission Deadline
 Sep 1, 98: Notification
 Nov 15, 98: Deadline for receipt of title, abstract, lecturer(s)
 information, course description and prerequisites
 Jun 1, 99: Deadline for receipt of camera-ready course material


WORKSHOPS: The aim of the workshops is to provide a forum for advanced
Ph.D. students and other researchers to present and discuss their work.
A workshop has a theme. At most one organizer is paid. The organizers
should be specialists in the theme of the workshop and give a general
introduction in the first session. They are also responsible for the
programme of the workshop, i.e., for finding speakers.

Each workshop organizer will be responsible for producing a Call for Papers
for the workshop by November 15, 1998. The call must make it clear that
the workshop is open to all members of the LLI community. It should also
note that all workshop contributors must register for the Summer School.

A workshop consists of five sessions (a one-week workshop) or ten
sessions (a two-week workshop). Sessions are normally 90 min.

 Where possible, please include phone and fax numbers.

Title: --- Title of proposed course/workshop.

Type: --- State whether this is a workshop, an foundational course, 
 an introductory course, or an advanced course.

Section: --- Which of the six sections (Language, Logic,
 Computation, Logic & Computation, Language
 & Computation or Language & Logic) does the
 proposal belong to? Please just name one.

Description: --- A description of the proposed contents.
 Not more than 150 words.

External --- State whether (and if so: how) you will be able to find
funding: external funding to subsidize your travel and
 accommodation expenses.

Further --- Any further information that is required by the above
particulars: guidelines should be included here.

FINANCIAL ASPECTS:
Prospective lecturers and workshop organizers should be aware
that all teaching and organizing at the summer schools is done on a
voluntary basis in order to keep the participants fees as low as possible.
Lecturers and organizers are not paid for their contribution, but are
reimbursed for travel and accommodation. In case of two lecturers, a lump sum 
is paid to cover travel expenses. The splitting of the sum is up to the
lecturers. 
(However, please note that the organizers appreciate it if, whenever possible, 
lecturers/organizers find alternative funding to cover travel and accommodation 
expenses.)

Workshop speakers are required to register for the Summer
School; however, workshop speakers will be able to register
at a reduced rate to be determined by the Organizing Committee.

Finally, it should be stressed that while proposals from all over the world
are welcomed, the Summer School can only afford to reimburse travel costs
for travel from destinations within Europe to Saarbruecken.
