SUMMER SCHOOL: Logic, Language and Information, 1-12 Aug 2011, SLOVENIA

23rd European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information (ESSLLI), Ljubljana, Slovenia

*Meeting Description*
For the past 23 years, the European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information (ESSLLI) has 
been organized every year by the Association for Logic, Language and Information (FoLLI) in 
different sites around Europe. The main focus of ESSLLI is on the interface between linguistics, 
logic and computation.

ESSLLI offers foundational, introductory and advanced courses, as well as workshops, covering 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. During two weeks, around 50 courses and 10 workshops 
are offered to the attendants, each of 1.5 hours per day during a five days week, with up to seven 
parallel sessions. ESSLLI also includes a student session (papers and posters by students only, 1.5
hour per day during the two weeks) and four evening lectures by senior scientists in the covered areas.

In 2011, ESSLLI will held in Ljubljana, Slovenia and will be organized by the Slovenian Language 
Technologies Society (SDJT), the Jo?ef Stefan Institute (IJS) and The Faculty of Mathematics and 
Physics (FMF) in Ljubljana, Slovenia. Chair of the Program Committee is Makoto Kanazawa (National 
Institute of Informatics, Japan), and Chair of the Organizing Committee is Darja Fi?er (The 
University of Ljubljana, Slovenia). To contact the ESSLLI 2011 Organizing Committee, write to:
