Dublin, Ireland 19th European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information, Aug. 6-17, 2007 12th Conference on Formal Grammar, Aug 4 & 5, 2007 Postgraduate Student Grants (EACL) This is a gentle reminder of the June 1 early registration deadline for the 19th European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information and co-located 12th Conference on Formal Grammar. At the bottom of this notice is information about six grants made available by the European Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics. Please see the ESSLLI website (http://www.cs.tcd.ie/esslli2007) for the current state of detail and online registration. The 19th European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information (ESSLLI 2007) is organized by the Computational Linguistics Group of the Department of Computer Science and the Centre for Language and Communication Studies, Trinity College Dublin, under the auspices of FoLLI, the European Association for Logic, Language and Information. The main focus of ESSLLI is the interface between linguistics, logic and computation. The school has developed into an important meeting place and forum for students, researchers and IT professionals interested in the interdisciplinary study of these three fields. The 19th edition of ESSLLI offers 42 courses, given by leading scholars, organized into three interdisciplinary areas (Language & Computation, Language & Logic, Logic & Computation), at a variety of levels (foundational, introductory, advanced); 6 workshops; and a Student Session. The 12th Conference on Formal Grammar is a co-located event. The course and workshops generally consist of 5 once-a-day 90 minute session. The dates for Formal Grammar are August 4 and 5, 2007. ESSLLI runs August 6-17, 2007. Foundational courses cover elementary subjects of a foundational nature. They presuppose no background knowledge, and should be accessible to people from other disciplines. Introductory courses are intended to equip students and young researchers with a good understanding of a field's basic methods and techniques, and to allow experienced researchers from other fields to acquire the key competences of neighboring disciplines, thus encouraging the development of a truly interdisciplinary research community. Advanced courses enable participants to acquire more specialized knowledge about topics they are already familiar with. The 6 Workshops are intended to encourage collaboration and the cross-fertilization of ideas by stimulating in-depth discussion of issues which are at the forefront of current research in the field. In these workshops, students and researchers can give presentations of their research. The Student Session has the aim of providing Masters and PhD students with an opportunity to present their own work to a professional audience, thereby getting informed feedback on their own results. For Workshops and the Student Session, see the web site for further information and CFPs. We are pleased to announce the availability of six 500 euro grants to postgraduate students funded through the generosity of the European Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics.
