************************************************

Under the auspices of the Association for Logic, Language, and
Information (FoLLI), the European Summer School in Logic, Language,
and Information (ESSLLI) runs every year. Except for 2021, where the
school will be virtual, it runs in a different European country each
year. It takes place over two weeks in the summer, hosts approximately
50 different courses at both introductory and advanced levels, and
attracts around 400 participants from all over the world.

Since 1989, ESSLLI has been providing outstanding interdisciplinary
educational opportunities in the fields of Computer Science, Cognitive
Science, Linguistics, Logic, Philosophy, and beyond. It comes from
a community which recognizes that advances in our common areas require
the contributions of multiple interrelated disciplines.

The main focus of ESSLLI 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 evening lectures.

TOPICS AND FORMAT

Proposals for courses and workshops at ESSLLI 2022 are invited in all
areas of Logic, Linguistics and Computer Sciences. Cross-disciplinary
and innovative topics are particularly encouraged.

Each course and workshop will consist of five 90 minute sessions,
offered daily (Monday-Friday) in a single week. Proposals for two-week
courses should be structured and submitted as two independent one-week
courses, e.g. as an introductory course followed by an advanced one.
In such cases, the ESSLLI program committee reserves the right to
accept just one of the two proposals.

All instructional and organizational work at ESSLLI is performed
completely on a voluntary basis, so as to keep participation fees
to a minimum. However, organizers and instructors have their registration
fees waived, and are reimbursed for travel and accommodation expenses
up to a level to be determined and communicated with the proposal
notification. ESSLLI can only guarantee reimbursement for at most one
course/workshop organizer, and cannot guarantee full reimbursement
of travel costs for lecturers or organizers from outside of Europe.
The ESSLLI organizers would appreciate any help in controlling the
School's expenses by seeking partial or complete coverage of travel
and accommodation expenses from other sources.

CATEGORIES

Each proposal should fall under one of the following categories.

* FOUNDATIONAL COURSES *
Such courses are designed to present the basics of a research area,
to people with no prior knowledge in that area. They should be of
elementary level, without prerequisites in the course's topic, though
possibly assuming a level of general scientific maturity in the relevant
discipline. They should enable researchers from related disciplines
to develop a level of comfort with the fundamental concepts and
techniques of the course's topic, thereby contributing to the
interdisciplinary nature of our research community.

* INTRODUCTORY COURSES *
Introductory courses are central to ESSLLI's mission. They are intended
to introduce a research field to students, young researchers, and other
non-specialists, and to foster a sound understanding of its basic methods
and techniques. Such courses should enable researchers from related
disciplines to develop some comfort and competence in the topic
considered. Introductory courses in a cross-disciplinary area may
presuppose general knowledge of the related disciplines.

* ADVANCED COURSES *
Advanced courses are targeted primarily to graduate students who wish to
acquire a level of comfort and understanding in the current research of a field.

* WORKSHOPS *
Workshops focus on specialized topics, usually of current interest. Workshop
organizers are responsible for soliciting papers and selecting the
workshop program. They are also responsible for publishing proceedings
if they decide to have proceedings.

PROPOSAL GUIDELINES

Course and workshop proposals should closely follow these guidelines to
ensure full consideration.

Course and Workshop proposals can be submitted by no more than two
lecturers/organizers and they are presented by no more than these
two lecturers/organizers. All instructors and organizers must possess
a PhD or equivalent degree by the submission deadline.

Course proposals should mention explicitly the intended course category.
Proposals for introductory courses should indicate the intended level,
for example as it relates to standard textbooks and monographs in the
area. Proposals for advanced courses should specify the prerequisites in detail.

Proposals of Courses given at ESSLLI the previous year will have a lower
priority of being accepted in the current year.

Proposals must be submitted in PDF format via:

https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=esslli2022

and include all of the following:

a. Personal information for each proposer: Name, affiliation, contact address,
email, homepage (optional)

b. General proposal information: Title, category

c. Contents information:
Abstract of up to 150 words
Motivation and description (up to two pages)
Tentative outline
Expected level and prerequisites
Appropriate references (e.g. textbooks, monographs, proceedings, surveys)

d. Information on the proposer and course:
Will your course appeal to students outside of the main discipline of
the course?
Include information on your experience in the intensive one-week
interdisciplinary setting
Include evidence that the course proposer is an excellent lecturer

e. Information from workshop organizers:
Include information on relevant preceding meetings and events, if
applicable
Include information about potential external funding for participants

SUBMISSION INFORMATION

By June 15:
You are asked to submit in EasyChair at least the name(s) of the instructor(s),
the ESSLLI area+course level and a short abstract.

By June 22:
Your submission must be completed by uploading a PDF with the actual proposal
as detailed above.

SUBMISSION PORTAL
Please submit your proposals to

https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=esslli2022

CHILDCARE: If there is enough interest, ESSLLI will provide information on
private child care services available during the summer school.

EACSL SPONSORSHIP
The EACSL will support one Logic and Computation course or workshop addressing
topics of interest to Computer Science Logic (CSL) conferences. The selected
course or workshop will be designated an EACSL course/workshop in the programme.
If you wish to be considered for this, please indicate so in your proposal.
