The E.W. Beth Dissertation Prize: Call for Nominations
Nominations are invited for the E.W. Beth Dissertation Prize
awarded by the European Association for Logic, Language and
Information (FoLLI) to outstanding dissertations in the fields of
Logic, Language and Information. As no prize has been awarded
during 2001, this year we invite nominations for two prizes, for
2001 and for 2002. The award, which is 2500 Euros, donated by the
E.W. Beth Foundation, will be split between the two winners.
Those who were awarded the PhD degree in the area of Logic, Language
and Information between either of the following periods:
January 1, 2000 - December 31, 2000 (for the 2001 prize) or
January 1, 2001 - December 31, 2001 (for the 2002 prize).
How to Submit?
We only accept electronic submissions. The following documents
* The thesis in pdf or ps format (doc/rtf not accepted)
* A one page abstract in ascii format

when the thesis was submitted.
* Two additional letters of support, including at least one
letter from a referee not affiliated with the academic
institution that awarded the Ph.D. degree.
