Call for Papers

DEALINE: April 1st, 2013 > April, 8th

The Student Session of the 25th European Summer School in Logic, Language, and Information (ESSLLI) will take place in Düsseldorf, Germany on August 5-16, 2013. We invite submissions of original, unpublished work from students in any area at the intersection of Logic & Language, Language & Computation, or Logic & Computation. Submissions will be reviewed by several experts in the field, and accepted papers will be presented orally or as posters and will appear in the student session proceedings. This is an excellent opportunity to receive valuable feedback from expert readers and to present your work to a diverse audience.

ESSLLI 2013 will be held in Düsseldorf, Germany, and will feature a wide range of foundational and advanced courses and workshops in all areas of Logic, Language, and Computation. Consult the ESSLLI 2013 website for further information.

Instructions for Authors:

Authors must be students, i.e., may not have received the Ph.D. degree before August 2013. All submissions must be in PDF format and be submitted to the conference EasyChair website. Submissions may be singly or jointly authored. No one may submit more than one singly and one jointly authored paper.

There are two types of papers. Long papers of up to 8 pages will be considered for oral presentation. Short papers of up to 4 pages will be considered as submissions for the poster session. These lengths refer to standard LNCS format, 10 pts. See below.

Submissions must be anonymous, without any identifying information, and must be received by April 1st, 2013.

Accepted papers will eventually have to be written in LaTeX in standard LNCS format (10 pts); the easiest thing is to do this in advance by using the Springer class files for LaTeX2e, which can be consulted here.

To get a sense of the range and subject matter of the Student Session, take a look at the proceedings from the 2011 Student Session and the 2010 Student Session. A Springer volume of selected papers from the 2008-2009 Student Sessions was published and can be found here.

Submission of papers: April 1st > April, 8th
Notification deadline: June 10 (in time to make early registration for ESSLLI with reduced fee)

Conference dates: August 5-16
