32nd European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information (ESSLLI 2020) cancelled/postponed

Location: Utrecht, The Netherlands
Deadline: Saturday 1 June 2019

Under the auspices of FoLLI the European Summer School in Logic, Language, and Information (ESSLLI) is organized every year in a different European country. It takes place over two weeks in the European Summer, hosts approximately 50 different courses at both the introductory and advanced levels, attracting around 400 participants each year from all the world.

The main focus of the program of the summer schools is the interface between linguistics, logic and computation, with special emphasis in human linguistic and cognitive ability. Courses, both introductory and advanced, cover a wide variety of topics within the combined areas of interest: Logic and Computation, Computation and Language, and Language and Logic. Workshops are also organized, providing opportunities for in-depth discussion of issues at the forefront of research, as well as a series of invited lectures.

Unfortunately, the circumstances around the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic forced the organizers to postpone the 32nd edition of ESSLLI, planned for 2020 in Utrecht. Together with the organisers of the 33rd ESSLLI (planned for 2021 in Galway, Ireland), the organisers are investigating whether they can postpone the 32nd ESSLLI to 2021.

Proposals for courses and workshops are invited in all areas of Logic, Linguistics and Computation. Cross-disciplinary and innovative topics are encouraged. Each course/workshop will consist of five 90-minute sessions, offered daily in a single week. Proposals for 2-week courses should be structured and submitted as two independent one-week courses. The ESSLLI program committee reserves the right to accept just one of the two proposals.

The EACSL offers to act as a sponsor for one course or workshop in the areas of Logic and Computation covered by the Computer Science Logic (CSL) conferences. This course or workshop will be designated an EACSL course/workshop. If you wish to be considered for this, please indicate so on your proposal.
