ESSLLI 2008 - early registration deadline soon


 ESSLLI 2008
        European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information
              Freie und Hansestadt Hamburg, Germany
                      4 - 15 August 2008


       ESSLLI is the annual meeting point for the whole community of Logic, Language and Information: the leading figures of our field are teaching courses and presenting their research in workshops; publishers are not only unveiling their newest books and journals but also scouting for future authors of publications; and junior and senior scientists meet for joint work on hard problems. Many logicians have met their future PhD supervisor or employer at an ESSLLI.

       ESSLLI 2008 in Hamburg is particularly good value-for-money: the relatively low (early) registration rate of 324 EUR for students, the cheap accommodation options (the lowest at around 250 EUR for the full two weeks), and an excellent connectivity by bus, train and budget airlines will make Hamburg 2008 affordable for young researchers who could not come to other ESSLLIs before.

       The early registration deadline is

       THURSDAY 1 MAY 2008.

If you register and pay before the deadline, you will benefit from the early registration rate of 324 EUR for students or 399 EUR for non-students. Also keep in mind that the most attractive accommodation options will be booked very early.

       We hope to see many of you in Hamburg next August. If there are any further questions, don't hesitate to send an e-mail to esslli2008@science.uva.nl. If you wish to subscribe to the ESSLLI 2008 Newsletter, please check
