        Subject: Call for Course and Workshop Proposals: ESSLLI 2016


Call for Course and Workshop Proposals
28th European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information - ESSLLI 2016
15-26 August, 2016 

Faculty of Computer Science, Free University of Bozen-Bolzano, Italy
in collaboration with University of Trento, Italy
http://esslli2016.unibz.it/

IMPORTANT DATES

 1 June 2015: Proposal submission deadline 
 23 September 2015: Notification
 20 July 2016: Course material due

TOPICS AND FORMAT

Proposals for courses and workshops at ESSLLI 2016 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 programme 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 can not 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.

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. Workshops organizers are responsible for soliciting papers and selecting the workshop programme. They are also responsible for publishing proceedings if they decide to have proceedings.

PROPOSAL GUIDELINES

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

Each course may have no more than two instructors, and each workshop no more than two 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:

https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=esslli2016

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