Student Session

Student Session

The ESSLLI 2021 Student Session will be held online during ESSLLI 2021.

The Student Session is a forum for PhD and Master students to present their research at the interfaces of logic, language and computation. It features three tracks: Logic & Computation (LoCo), Logic & Language (LoLa), and Language & Computation (LaCo).

Call for Papers

Deadline for submissions: April 4th, 2021 April 25th, 2021


The Student Session of the 32nd European Summer School in Logic, Language, and Information (ESSLLI) will take place online during ESSLLI 2021 (, held virtually on 26 July - 13 August 2021.

We invite submissions of original, unpublished work from students in any area at the intersection of Logic & Language, Language & Computation, or Logic & Computation.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. Selected papers will appear in the Student Session proceedings by Springer. This is an excellent opportunity to receive valuable feedback from expert readers and to present your work to a diverse audience.

Long/short Presentations

Note that there are two separate kinds of submissions, one for long presentations and one for short presentations. 
This means that papers are directly submitted either as long or short. Reviewing and ranking will be done separately. We particularly encourage submissions for short papers, as they offer an excellent opportunity to present smaller research projects and research in progress.

Submission Guidelines

Authors must be students, and submissions may be singly or jointly authored. Each author may submit at most one single and 
one jointly authored contribution. Submissions should not be longer than 8 pages for a long paper or 4 pages for a short paper (including examples and references). Submissions must be anonymous, without any identifying information. More detailed guidelines regarding submission can be found on the Student Session website:

Sponsorship and Prizes

As in previous years, Springer has kindly agreed to sponsor the ESSLLI student session. The best long and best short talk will be awarded Springer book vouchers of 500 euro each.
