                      ESSLLI-2002 STUDENT SESSION

                        SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS

                    August 5-16 2002, Trento, Italy

                      Deadline: February 25th, 2002


    We are pleased to announce the Student Session of the 14th European
    Summer School in Logic, Language and Information (ESSLLI-2002)
    organised by the Centre for scientific and technological research
    (ITC-irst) in Trento and by the University of Trento, under the
    auspices of the European Association for Logic, Language and
    Information (FoLLI). ESSLLI-2002 will be held in Trento from August
    5-16 2002. We invite submission of papers for presentation at the
    ESSLLI-2002 Student Session and for appearance in the proceedings.

    This seventh ESSLLI Student Session will provide, like the other
    editions, an opportunity for ESSLLI participants who are students to
    present their own work in progress and get feedback from senior
    researchers and fellow-students. The ESSLLI Student Session
    encourages submissions from students at any level, from undergraduates
    (before completion of the Master Thesis) as well as postgraduates
    (before completion of the PhD degree). Papers co-authored by
    non-students will not be accepted. Papers may be accepted for full
    presentation (30 minutes including 10 minutes of discussion) or for a
    poster presentation. All the accepted papers will be published in the
    ESSLLI-2002 Student Session proceedings, which will be made available
    during the summer school.

    KLUWER BEST PAPER AWARD: As in previous years, the best paper will be
    selected by the programme committee and will be offered a prize of 600
    euros by Kluwer Academic Publishers to be spent on books.

    The Student Session papers should describe original, unpublished work,
    completed or in progress that demonstrates insight, creativity, and
    promise. No previously published papers should be submitted. Note
    that the ESSLLI02 school will be focused on the three main
    interdisciplinary areas (Logic & Language, Logic & Computation, and
    Language & Computation), while the single areas have been
    dropped. Given the high interest shown over the years, the Student
    Session will keep two of the single areas, namely Logic and Language,
    welcoming thus submissions within the following topics: Logic,
    Language, Logic & Language, Logic & Computation, Language &

    Student authors should submit an anonymous full paper headed by the
    paper title, not to exceed 7 pages of length exclusive of references
    and send a separate identification page (see below). Note that the
    length of the final version of the accepted papers will not be allowed
    to exceed 10 pages. Since reviewing will be blind, the body of the
    paper should omit author names and addresses. Furthermore,
    self-references that reveal the author's identity (e.g., "We
    previously showed (Smith, 1991)... ") should be avoided. It is
    possible to use instead references like "Smith (1991) previously
    showed...". For any submission, a plain ASCII text version of the
    identification page should be sent separately, using the following

    Title: title of the submission
    First author: firstname lastname
    Address: address of the first author
    Last author: firstname lastname
    Address: address of the last author
    Short summary: abstract (5 lines)
    Subject area (one of): Logic | Language | Logic and
    Language | Logic and Computation | Language and Computation

    If necessary, the programme committee may reassign papers to a more
    appropriate subject area. The submission of the paper
    should be in one of the following formats: PostScript, PDF, RTF, or
    plain text. But note that, in case of acceptance, the final version of
    the paper has to be submitted in LaTeX format. Please, use A4 size
    pages, 11pt or 12pt fonts, and standard margins. Submissions outside
    the specified length and formatting requirements may be subject to
    rejection without review.

    The paper and separate identification page must be sent by
    e-mail to:

  by FEBRUARY 25th 2002
