​Call for Course and Workshop Proposals

29th European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information -
17-28 July, 2017, Toulouse, France

IMPORTANT DATES (with extended deadline)

 15 July 2016: Proposal submission deadline
 30 September 2016: Notification

Please submit your proposals here:



Proposals for courses and workshops at ESSLLI 2017 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.


Each proposal should fall under one of the following categories.

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

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 are targeted primarily to graduate students who wish to
acquire a level of comfort and understanding in the current research of a

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.


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

Each course proposal can be submitted by no more than two instructors, and
each workshop by no more than two organizers. All instructors and
organizers must possess a PhD or equivalent degree by the submission

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, category

c. Contents information:
