The first North American Summer School in Logic, Language, and Information


The eleventh Logic, Language, and Computation Colloquium at CSLI

June 24-30, 2002
Stanford University
Stanford, California, USA



We are pleased to announce that the first North American Summer School in 
Logic, Language, and Information (NASSLLI) will take place at Stanford 
University from the 24th to the 30th of June. It will be followed by the 
eleventh Logic, Language, and Computation Colloquium (LLC) at CSLI, the 
program of which will be integrated with the school.

The thematic focus of NASSLLI is modeled on that of its European sister 
event, ESSLLI. As it is customary with schools of this nature, the classes 
will run from foundational and introductory to advanced. Each lecturer will 
give a set of five one hour lectures on a topic suitable for a broad 
audience interested in the interface of logic, language, and computation.

NASSLLI is ideal for graduate and advanced undergraduate students in 
linguistics, computer science, philosophy, mathematics and psychology, as 
well as postdoctoral students, IT professionals, and faculty seeking to 
extend their knowledge of the field.

We wish to extend you an invitation to join us here at Stanford between 
June 24 and June 30, 2002, in order to experience cutting edge research 
carried out by some of the finest teachers in North America and Europe.

In addition to lectures, the event will include workshops, evening lectures
