%%%%%%%%%%%%%%&# 37;%%%%%%%%%%%%%% ;%%%%%% Seventeenth European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information ESSLLI-2005 August 8--19, 2005, Edinburgh, U.K. %%%%%%%%%%%%%%&# 37;%%%%%%%%%%%%%% ;%%%%%% CALL FOR COURSE and WORKSHOP PROPOSALS -------------------------------------- The Seventeenth European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information will be held at Heriot-Watt, Edinburgh, United Kingdom. The Summer Schools focus on the interface between linguistics, logic and computation. Foundational, introductory and advanced courses together with workshops cover a wide variety of topics within the three areas of interest: Language and Computation, Language and Logic, and Logic and Computation. Previous summer schools have been highly successful, attracting up to 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-2005 is organized under the auspices of the European Association for Logic, Language and Information (FoLLI). The ESSLLI-2005 Program Committee invites proposals for foundational, introductory, and advanced courses, and for workshops for the 17-th annual Summer School on a wide range of timely topics that have demonstrated their relevance in the following fields: - LANGUAGE & COMPUTATION - LANGUAGE & LOGIC - LOGIC & COMPUTATION Besides courses and workshops the Student Session will be held again. Contributions for the Student Session will be solicited in a separate call. PROPOSAL SUBMISSION: Proposals should be submitted through a web form available at <http://www.esslli.org/ 2005/submission.html>. All proposals should be submitted no later than Thursday July 15, 2004. Authors of proposals will be notified of the committee's decision no later than Wednesday September 15, 2004. Proposers should follow the guidelines below while preparing their submissions; proposals that deviate can not be considered. ALL COURSES: Courses are taught by 1 or maximally 2 lecturers. They typically consist of five sessions (a one-week course) or ten sessions (a two-week course). Each session lasts 90 minutes. Courses are given on three levels. FOUNDATIONAL COURSES: These are really elementary courses not assuming any background knowledge. They are intended for people to get acquainted with the problems and techniques of areas new to them. Ideally, they should allow researchers from other fields to acquire the key competences of neighboring disciplines, thus encouraging the development of a truly interdisciplinary research community. Foundational courses may presuppose some experience with scientific methods in general, so as to be able to concentrate on the issues that are germane to the area of the course. 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. Introductory courses in, for instance, Language and Computation, can build on some knowledge of the component fields; e.g., an introductory course in computational linguistics should address an audience which is familiar with the basics of linguistics and computation. Proposals for introductory courses should indicate the level of the course as compared to standard texts in the area (if available). 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. TIMETABLE for the Submission of Course Proposals Jul 15, 2004: Proposal Submission Deadline Sep 15, 2004: Notification Nov 15, 2004: Deadline for receipt of title, abstract, lecturer(s) information, course description and prerequisites Jun 1, 2005: 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 centers around a specific theme and the organizers should be specialists in the theme of the workshop and give a general introduction in the first session. A workshop consists of five sessions (a one-week workshop). Sessions are normally 90 minutes. Workshop organizers are responsible for the program of the workshop, i.e., for finding speakers. Each organizer will be responsible for producing a Call for Papers for the workshop by November 15, 2004. 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. TIMETABLE for the Submission of Workshop Proposals: Jul 15, 2004: Proposal Submission Deadline Sep 15, 2004: Notification Nov 15, 2004: Deadline for receipt of Call for Papers (by ESSLLI PC chair) Dec 1, 2004: Workshop organizers send out (First) Call for Papers Mar 15, 2005: Deadline for Papers (suggested) May 1, 2005: Notification of Workshop Contributors (suggested) May 15, 2005: Deadline for Provisional Workshop Program Jun 1, 2005: Deadline for receipt of camera-ready copy of Workshop notes Jun 1, 2005: Deadline for Final Workshop Program FORMAT FOR PROPOSALS: Course and workshop proposals can be submitted at <http://www.esslli.org/ 2005/submission.html>. You will be required to submit the following information: * Name (name(s) of proposed lecturer(s)/organizer) * Address (contact addresses of proposed lecturer(s)/organizer; where possible, please include phone and fax numbers) * Title (title of proposed course/workshop) * Type (is this a workshop, a foundational course, an introductory course, or an advanced course?) * Section (does your proposal fit in Language & Computation, Language & Logic or Logic & Computation? name only one) * Description (in at most 150 words, describe the proposed contents and substantiate timeliness and relevance to ESSLLI) * External funding (will you be able to find external funding to help fund your travel and accommodation expenses? if so, how?) * Further particulars (any further information that is required by the above 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. The guidelines for funding and reimbursement are as follows. For each workshop and for each one week course, one lecturer/organizer will be reimbursed for his/her travel expenses (economy/APEX only) and his/her accomodation for the duration of the one week course/workshop (plus the weekend preceding or following the course, so as to enable the purchase of reasonably priced plane tickets). Lecturers/organizers of one week courses/workshops are entitled to attend the entire two-week summer school without having to pay registration fees; their accommodation will only be paid for for a single week, though. In case a course is taught by two lecturers, a lump sum is paid to cover travel and accommodation expenses. The splitting of the sum is up to the lecturers. In exceptional cases, a course may last two weeks instead of a single week; for the purpose of reimbursements, a two week course counts as two one week courses, which means that up to two lecturers can get their travel expenses refunded (economy/APEX only), and either two lecturers can each get one week of accommodation or a single lecturer gets the full two weeks of accommodation refunded. Two week workshops are not an option. Please allow us to underline that the organizers highly appreciate it if, whenever possible, lecturers and workshop 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 in general guarantee only to reimburse travel costs for travel from destinations within Europe to Edinburgh. Exceptions will be made depending on the financial situation.
