ESSLLI 2006 is organized by the Software Engineering Group of the University
of Malaga, under the auspices of FoLLI, the European Association for Logic,

forum for discussion for students, researchers and IT professionals
interested in the interdisciplinary study of Logic, Language and

The 18th edition of ESSLLI is offering 48 courses, organized into three
interdisciplinary areas (Language & Computation, Language & Logic, and Logic
& Computation), at a variety of levels (foundational, introductory,

Foundational courses aim to provide truly introductory courses into a field.
The courses presuppose absolutely no background knowledge. In particular,
they should be accessible to people from other disciplines. Introductory
courses are intended to equip students and young researchers with a good
understanding of a field's basic methods and techniques, and to allow
experienced researchers from other fields to acquire the key competences of
neighboring disciplines, thus encouraging the development of a truly
interdisciplinary research community. Advanced courses are intended to
enable participants to acquire more specialized knowledge about topics they
are already familiar with. Workshops are intended to encourage collaboration

and the cross-fertilization of ideas by stimulating in-depth discussion of
issues which are at the forefront of current research in the field. In these
workshops, students and researchers can give presentations of their

In addition to courses and workshops a student session is being also
organized, with the aim of providing Masters and PhD students with an
opportunity to present their own work to a professional audience, thereby
getting informed feedback on their own results. Unlike workshops, the
student session is not tied to any specific theme.

If you are interested in presenting a paper to any of the ESSLLI workshops,

The early (extended) registration deadline is May 14, 2006.
