Since 2002, FoLLI (the Association for Logic,
Language, and Information, http://www.folli.info
has awarded the E.W. Beth Dissertation Prize to outstanding dissertations in the
fields of Logic, Language, and Information. We invite submissions for the best
dissertation which resulted in a Ph.D. degree awarded in 2017.
Nominations of candidates are admitted who were awarded a Ph.D.
degree in the areas of Logic, Language, or Information between January 1, 2017 and
December 31, 2017. Theses must be written in English; however, the Committee accepts
submissions of English translations of theses originally written in other languages,
and for which a PhD was awarded in the preceding two years (i.e. between January 1,
2015 and December 31, 2017). There is no restriction on the nationality of the
candidate or on the university where the Ph.D. was granted.
The prize consists of:
- A certificate
- A donation of 2500 euros
provided by the E.W. Beth Foundation
- An invitation to submit the thesis (or a
revised version of it) to the FoLLI Publications on Logic, Language and Information
How to submit:
Only electronic submissions are
accepted. The following documents are required:
- The thesis in pdf format
(ps/doc/rtf not accepted).
- A ten-page abstract of the dissertation in pdf
- A letter of nomination from the thesis supervisor (see below).
Two additional letters of support, including at least one from a referee not
affiliated with the academic institution that awarded the Ph.D. degree.
are not admitted: each nomination must be sponsored by the thesis supervisor. The
letter of nomination should concisely describe the scope and significance of the
dissertation and state when the degree was officially awarded. Nominations should
contain the email contact details of the nominator.
All documents must be
