The Student Session of the 22nd European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information will take place in Copenhagen, Denmark from August 9 to August 20. We invite submissions of papers describing original, unpublished research conducted in the interdisciplinary areas of LOgic and COmputation, LOgic and LAnguage, and LAnguage and COmputation. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • natural language semantics, natural language syntax, syntax-semantics interface, semantics-pragmatics interface, discourse semantics, vagueness in natural language, Lambek calculus
  • natural language processing, morphology, syntax, parsing, dialogue and discourse modelling, machine translation, computational psycholinguistics
  • knowledge representation and reasoning, belief dynamics, formal verification and model checking, logics for individual and collective agency, formal argumentation, game semantics

Submissions can be either long or short papers:


Long papers should not exceed 8 pages of length including references and appendix. Accepted long papers will be orally presented.

Short papers are papers presenting initial results. Submitted papers should not exceed 4 pages of length including references and appendix. Accepted short papers will be presented in a poster session.


For more information, see instructions for authors.

If you are interested to promote the student session at your institution feel free to download, print and distribute the flyer and/or the poster.

Each submission is reviewed by three specialists in the field, which provides the authors with useful, constructive feedback regardless of whether their paper is accepted. The student sessions aim to provide a forum where promising work of Master or Ph.D. students can be presented and discussed. It is an excellent training for students in different respects. The students have the opportunity to prepare their own submission and experience the entire cycle of the (peer-reviewed) selection process, as well as receive feedback from both fellow students and leading experts in the corresponding field. Selected papers from both submission tracks will appear in the proceedings.

As in previous years, Springer is offering 1000€ in prizes for the best short and the best long papers.

All submissions must represent original, unpublished work, and all (co-)authors must be students (i.e., before the completion of the Ph.D.). Papers should be submitted as a pdf file to the EasyChair site:

EasyChair ESSLLI StuS 2010

Authors must choose a category for submission, long or short paper in Logic and Computation, Logic and Language, or Language and Computation. Please note that at least one of the authors will have to register as an ESSLLI participant. Format

All papers must be submitted in pdf format (though each paper accepted will eventually have to be in LaTeX format).
Papers should use the llncs formating instructions, the Springer class file which can be downloaded here . The long papers must not exceed 8 pages, while the short papers must not exceed 4 pages including references.

All papers should be anonymous, so please eliminate all information that might identify the author. Non-anonymous papers will not be considered.

Each submission will be reviewed by three experts in the area of the paper, and the final decisions will be made based on these reviews.

Instructions for accepted papers and posters

Accepted papers should be revised in accordance with reviewers papers and re-submited. The length for accepted papers should not exceede 12 pages in the llncs formating.

Authors whose work is accepted for poster presentation should prepare a A0 format poster. All the posters will be displayed for the duration of the two ESSLLI weeks. Consult http://www.swarthmore.edu/NatSci/cpurrin1/posteradvice.htm on advice how to prepare a poster.
