  • About:We invite submissions of original, unpublished work from students in any area at the intersection of Logic & Language, Language & Computation, or Logic & Computation. Submissions will be reviewed by several experts in the field, and accepted papers will be presented orally or as posters. Selected papers have regularly been appearing in the Student Session proceedings published by Spinger (https://dblp.uni-trier.de/db/conf/esslli/). This is an excellent opportunity to receive valuable feedback from expert readers and to present your work to a diverse audience.
  • Oral/Poster Presentations:Note that there are two separate kinds of submissions, one for oral presentations and one for posters. This means that papers are directly submitted either as oral presentations or as poster presentations. Reviewing and ranking will be done separately. We particularly encourage submissions for posters, as they offer an excellent opportunity to present smaller research projects and research in progress.
  • Sponsorship and Prizes:Springergenerously supports the ESSLLI Student Session by offering prizes for a total of 1000€ in Springer books. The best poster and the best talk will each be awarded Springer book vouchers of 500€ each. The prizes are awarded based on the reviews of the submission as well as the oral/poster presentation.
  • ESSLLI 2020 will feature a wide range of foundational and advanced courses and workshops in all areas of Logic, Language, and Computation. For further information, including registration information and course listings, and for general inquiries about ESSLLI 2020, please consult the main ESSLLI 2020 page.
