ESSLLI 2019: Logic, Language & Information
5-16 Aug 2019
Riga, Latvia

Call for Course and Workshop Proposals
31st European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information - ESSLLI 2019
5-16 August, 2019, Riga, Latvia

  15 June 2018: Proposal submission deadline
  15 September 2018: Notification

Please submit your proposals here:

Proposals for courses and workshops at ESSLLI 2019 are invited in all areas
of Logic, Linguistics and Computing 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 complete coverage
of travel and accommodation expenses from other sources.

The organizers want to point out the possibility of an EACSL sponsorship,
mentioned at the end of this call.


Each proposal should fall under one of the following categories.

Foundational courses are designed to present the basics of a research area
to people with no prior knowledge in that area. They should be pitched at
an elementary level, without prerequisites related to the topic of the
course, 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 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 familiarity with and competence in the topic in
question. Introductory courses in a cross-disciplinary area may presuppose
general knowledge of the related disciplines.

Advanced courses are targeted primarily to graduate students who wish to
acquire a higher level of understanding in the current research on a given
topic or in a given field.

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

All proposals should closely follow the following guidelines to ensure full

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 must be submitted in PDF format via:


and include all of the following:

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

b. General proposal information: Title, area (Language and Computation,
Language and Logic, or Logic and Computation)

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

d. Practical information:
    Relevant preceding meetings and events, if applicable
    Potential external funding for participants
    For workshops, potential invited speakers, if any

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.
