NOTE: Please Note the EACSL Sponsorship offered in the Call below.  It
is especially meant to encourage proposals in the area of Logic in
Computer Science!

Call for Course and Workshop Proposals
28th European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information -
15-26 August, 2016
Faculty of Computer Science, Free University of Bozen-Bolzano, Italy
in collaboration with University of Trento, Italy

IMPORTANT DATES (with extended deadline)

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


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.

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


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 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 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 field.

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:
    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,

d. Practical information:
    Relevant preceding meetings and events, if applicable
    Potential external funding for participants


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.
