                     FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS

                August 5-16 2002, Trento, Italy

                  Deadline: February 25th, 2002


We are pleased to announce the Student Session of the 14th European
Summer School in Logic, Language and Information (ESSLLI-2002)
organised by the Centre for scientific and technological research
(ITC-irst) in Trento and by the University of Trento, under the
auspices of the European Association for Logic, Language and
Information (FoLLI). ESSLLI-2002 will be held in Trento from August
5-16 2002. We invite submission of papers for presentation at the
ESSLLI-2002 Student Session and for appearance in the proceedings.

This seventh ESSLLI Student Session will provide, like the other
editions, an opportunity for ESSLLI participants who are students to
present their own work in progress and get feedback from senior
researchers and fellow-students.  The ESSLLI Student Session
encourages submissions from students at any level, from undergraduates
(before completion of the Master Thesis) as well as postgraduates
(before completion of the PhD degree). Papers co-authored by
non-students will not be accepted.  Papers may be accepted for full
presentation (30 minutes including 10 minutes of discussion) or for a
poster presentation.  All the accepted papers will be published in the
ESSLLI-2002 Student Session proceedings, which will be made available
during the summer school.

KLUWER BEST PAPER AWARD: As in previous years, the best paper will be
selected by the programme committee and will be offered a prize by
Kluwer Academic Publishers to be spent on books.

The Student Session papers should describe original, unpublished work,
completed or in progress that demonstrates insight, creativity, and
promise. No previously published papers should be submitted.  Note
that the ESSLLI02 school will be focussed on the three main
interdisciplinary areas (Logic & Language, Logic & Computation, and
Language & Computation), while the single areas have been
dropped. Given the high interest shown over the years, the Student
Session will keep two of the single areas, namely Logic and Language,
welcoming thus submissions within the following topics: Logic,
Language, Logic & Language, Logic & Computation, Language &

Student authors should submit an anonymous full paper headed by the
paper title, not to exceed 7 pages of length exclusive of references
and send a separate identification page (see below). Note that the
length of the final version of the accepted papers will not be allowed
to exceed 10 pages. Since reviewing will be blind, the body of the
abstract should omit author names and addresses. Furthermore,
self-references that reveal the author's identity (e.g., "We
previously showed (Smith, 1991)... ") should be avoided. It is
possible to use instead references like "Smith (1991) previously
showed...".  For any submission, a plain ASCII text version of the
identification page should be sent separately, using the following

Title: title of the submission 
First author: firstname lastname
Address: address of the first author 
Last author: firstname lastname 
Address: address of the last author 
Short summary: abstract (5 lines) 
Subject area (one of): Logic | Language | Logic and
Language | Logic and Computation | Language and Computation

If necessary, the program committee may reassign papers to a more
appropriate subject area. The submission of the extended abstract
should be in one of the following formats: PostScript, PDF, RTF, or
plain text. But note that, in case of acceptance, the final version of
the paper has to be submitted in LaTeX format. Please, use A4 size
pages, 11pt or 12pt fonts, and standard margins. Submissions outside
the specified length and formatting requirements may be subject to
rejection without review.

The paper and separate identification page must be sent by
e-mail to:
