Call for submissions: ESSLLI 2010 Student Session

This is the first call for submissions for ESSLLI 2010 Student session.
Deadline for submission is February 19, 2010.

The Student Session of the 22nd European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information will take place in Copenhagen, Denmark from August 9 to August 20. We invite submissions of papers describing original, unpublished research conducted in the interdisciplinary areas of LOgic and COmputation, LOgic and LAnguage, and LAnguage and COmputation.

All (co-)authors must be students (i.e., before the completion of the Ph.D.). To that end we particularly encourage senior academics to disseminate this information among their students and support their submission.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

     * natural language semantics, natural language syntax, syntax-semantics interface, semantics-pragmatics interface, discourse semantics, vagueness in natural language, Lambek calculus
     * natural language processing, morphology, syntax, parsing, dialogue and discourse modelling, machine translation, computational psycholinguistics
     * knowledge representation and reasoning, belief dynamics, formal verification and model checking, logics for individual and collective agency, formal argumentation, game semantics

Submissions can be either long or short papers:

Long papers should not exceed 8 pages of length including references and appendix. Accepted long papers will be orally presented.

Short papers are papers presenting initial results. Submitted papers should not exceed 4 pages of length including references and appendix. Accepted short papers will be presented in a poster session.

As in previous years, Springer is offering 1000? in prizes. The sum will be evenly split among the best short and the best long papers.
