2009 ESSLLI Student Session

Call for Papers

Deadline Passed


The Student Session of the 21st European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information will take place in Bordeaux, France from July 20 to July 31. We invite submission of papers in the areas of logic and computation, logic and language, and language and computation, for presentation at the Student Session and for appearance in the proceedings.

Aim of the Student Session

The aim of the Student Session is to give undergraduate, masters, and doctoral students the chance to present their work. In addition, each paper is reviewed by three specialists in the field, which gives authors useful feedback regardless of whether the paper is accepted.


As in previous years, Springer is offering Euro 1000 in prizes. Euro 500 in Springer textbooks will go to first prize, and Euro 250 will go to each of two runners-up.


All submissions must represent original, unpublished work, and all (co-)authors must be students (i.e., before the completion of the Ph.D.).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 2009

Authors must choose a category for submission: Logic and Computation, Logic and Language, or Language and Computation. It is also requested that authors specify whether they would be interested in presenting in the oral or the poster session. If both boxes are checked, or if neither box is checked, it will be assumed that there is no preference.

Please note that at least one of the authors will have to register as an ESSLLI participant.


All papers must be submitted in pdf format (though each paper accepted will eventually have to be in LaTeX format).

Papers should use single column A4 size pages, in 11pt or 12pt font, with standard margins, and must not exceed 7 pages exclusive of references. (The final version, for publication in the proceedings, can be up to 10 pages.)

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.
