8-16 July 2016, North American Summer School for Logic, Language, and Information (NASSLLI 2016), New Brunswick, New Jersey

Date: 8-16 July 2016
Location: New Brunswick, New Jersey
Deadline: 30 September 2015

The North American Summer School on Logic, Language, and Information (NASSLLI) is a summer school that meets approximately every other summer. It is geared towards gradaute students and advanced undergraduate students in fields such as Cognitive Science, Computer Science, Linguistics, and Philosophy. Instructors are senior researchers who have helped to found and advance the research in these fields, as well as junior researchers helping to expand upon previous work and shape new directions of these fields. One of the strongest aspects of NASSLLI is an excitement about interdisciplinary research that brings people across these fields together.

NASSLLI 2016 will consist of a series of courses and workshops, among which are five featured courses taught by Johan van Benthem, Maria Bittner, Reinhard Muskens, Uli Sattler, and Brian Skyrms. In addition, there will be intensive training on a small set of foundational topics the weekend prior to the start of courses.

Early bird registration deadline: April 15th, 2016. For more information, see http://nasslli2016.rutgers.edu/

We invite proposals for courses and workshops that fall into the areas of logic, linguistics, computer science, cognitive science, philosophy and artificial intelligence, and interdisciplinary overlap among them. Examples of possible topics include logics for communication, computational semantics, modal logics, game theory and decision theory, dynamic semantics, machine learning, Bayesian cognitive modeling, probabilistic models of language and communication, and automated theorem proving. By default, courses and workshops meet for 90 minutes on each of five days. Classes may be co-taught by up to two people. Deadline for proposals: September 30, 2015.
