Host Institution: University of Latvia
Coordinating Institution: Association for Logic, Language and Information (FoLLI)

Dates: 05-Aug-2019 - 16-Aug-2019
Location: Riga, Latvia

Focus: The European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information is an event organized every year in a different European country under the auspices of the Association for Logic, Language and Information (FoLLI).
Minimum Education Level: No Minimum
Special Qualifications: Although formal minimum education level is not required it is up to participant to decide his/her qualification. Basic knowledge of mathematical logic, computational linguistics would help.

Courses and workshops at ESSLLI 2019 are invited in all areas of Logic, Linguistics and Computing Sciences. Cross-disciplinary and innovative topics are particularly encouraged. Each course and workshop will consist of five 90 minute sessions, offered daily

(Monday-Friday) in a single week. Proposals for two-week courses should be structured and submitted as two independent one-week courses, e.g. as an introductory course followed by an advanced one. In such cases, the ESSLLI program committee reserves the right to accept just one of the two proposals.

All instructional and organizational work at ESSLLI is performed completely on a voluntary basis, so as to keep participation fees to a minimum. However, organizers and instructors have their registration fees waived and are reimbursed for travel and accommodation expenses up to a level to be determined and communicated with the proposal notification. ESSLLI can only guarantee reimbursement for at most one course/workshop organizer, and cannot guarantee full reimbursement of travel costs for lecturers or organizers from outside of Europe. The ESSLLI organizers would appreciate any help in controlling the School’s expenses by seeking complete coverage of travel and accommodation expenses from other sources.
