********* NASSLLI'02 The first North American Summer School in Logic, Language, and Information and LLC11 The eleventh Logic, Language, and Computation Colloquium at CSLI June 24-30, 2002 Stanford University Stanford, California, USA http://www.stanford.edu/gro up/nasslli ********* We are pleased to announce that the first North American Summer School in Logic, Language, and Information (NASSLLI) will take place at Stanford University from the 24th to the 30th of June. It will be followed by the eleventh Logic, Language, and Computation Colloquium (LLC) at CSLI, the program of which will be integrated with the school. The thematic focus of NASSLLI is modeled on that of its European sister event, ESSLLI. As it is customary with schools of this nature, the classes will run from foundational and introductory to advanced. Each lecturer will give a set of five one hour lectures on a topic suitable for a broad audience interested in the interface of logic, language, and computation. NASSLLI is ideal for graduate and advanced undergraduate students in linguistics, computer science, philosophy, mathematics and psychology, as well as postdoctoral students, IT professionals, and faculty seeking to extend their knowledge of the field. We wish to extend you an invitation to join us here at Stanford between June 24 and June 30, 2002, in order to experience cutting edge research carried out by some of the finest teachers in North America and Europe. Our program to date: - Martin Abadi (CS, UCSC) [Computer Security] - Samson Abramsky (CS, Oxford) [Games in Computer Science] - Sergei Artemov (CS, CUNY New York) [Proof Polynomials] - Patrick Blackburn (INRIA Lorraine) [Lectures on Hybrid Logic] - Craig Boutilier (CS, University of Toronto) [Logical and Statistical Methods in AI] - Joan Bresnan (Linguistics, Stanford) [Optimality Theory] - Paul Dekker (Philosophy, Amsterdam) [Dynamics, Semantics, Pragmatics] - R.E. Jennings (Philosophy, Simon Fraser University) [Logicalization] - Ed Keenan (Linguistics, UCLA) [A Mathematical Theory of Grammatical Theories] - Phokion Kolaitis (CS, UCSC) [Constraint Satisfaction, Complexity, and Logic] - Larry Moss (Math, Indiana) [Dynamic Epistemic Logic] - Marc Pauly and Mike Wooldridge (Liverpool) [Modal Logic and Agents] - Fernando C.N. Pereira (Computer and Information Science, UPenn) [Machine Learning in Natural Language Processing] - Frank Veltman (Logic & Cognitive Science, Amsterdam) [Logic in AI] - Dag Westerstahl (Philosophy, Stockholm) and Stanley Peters (Linguistics, Stanford) [Generalized Quantifiers] In addition to lectures, the event will include workshops, evening lectures by distinguished researchers, as well as sporting events, party and more. There will be a limited number of scholarships awarded to eligible students. Please visit http://www.stanford.edu/gr oup/nasslli/ for more information.
