2nd CALL FOR PAPERS: ESSLLI Student Session, 11-22 Aug 2014, Tuebingen, GERMANY

*2nd Call for Papers*

Held during the 26th European Summer School in Logic, Language and

Tbingen, Germany, August 11-22, 2014

*Deadline for submissions: April 1st, 2014*

The Student Session of the 26th European Summer School in Logic, Language,
and Information (ESSLLI) will take place in Tbingen, Germany on August
11-22, 2014. We invite submissions of original, unpublished work from
students in any area at the intersection of Logic & Language, Language &
Computation, or Logic & Computation. Submissions will be reviewed by
several experts in the field, and accepted papers will be presented orally
or as posters and will appear in the student session proceedings by
Springer. This is an excellent opportunity to receive valuable feedback
from expert readers and to present your work to a diverse audience.

Note that there are two separate kinds of submissions, one for the oral
presentations and one for the posters. This means that papers can be
directly submitted as posters. Reviewing and ranking will be done
separately. We particularly encourage submissions for posters, as they
offer an excellent opportunity to present research in progress.

All authors must be students, and submissions may be singly or jointly
authored. Submissions should not be longer than 8 pages for an oral
presentation and 4 pages for a poster presentation (including examples and
references). Submissions must be anonymous, without any identifying
information. More detailed guidelines regarding submission can be found on
the Student Session website:

Please direct inquiries about submission procedures or other matters
relating to the Student Session to

ESSLLI 2014 will feature a wide range of foundational and advanced courses
and workshops in all areas of Logic, Language, and Computation. For further
information, including registration information and course listings, and
for general inquiries about ESSLLI 2014, please consult the main ESSLLI
2014 page:
