		       Call for Papers

		 Deadline: March 15th, 2002

 We are pleased to announce the Student Session of the First North American 
 Summer School in Logic, Language and Information (NASSLLI) organized by
 the  Department of Philosophy, the Department of Linguistics, the
 Department of Computer Science, and the Center for the Study of Language
 and Information,  at Stanford University. NASSLLI-2002 will be held in
 Stanford, CA, from  June 24-30, 2002. We invite submission of papers for
 presentation at the  NASSLLI-2002 Student Session.

 PURPOSE -- This NASSLLI Student Session will provide an opportunity for 
 NASSLLI participants who are students to present their own work in
 progress and get feedback from senior researchers and fellow-students.  
 The NASSLLI  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 (20 minutes including 10 minutes of discussion)

 REQUIREMENTS -- 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 unpublished work, completed or in progress that demonstrates insight, 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 NASSLLI-2002 school will be focused on the three 
 main areas (Logic, Language, & Computation).

 FORMAT OF SUBMISSION-- Student authors should submit an anonymous full 
 paper headed by the paper title, not to exceed 10 pages of length
 exclusive  of references and send a separate identification page (see

 Since reviewing will be blind, the body of the paper 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 separate 
 identification page should be sent separately, using the following format:

 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 | Computation

 If necessary, the program committee may reassign papers to a more 
 appropriate subject area. The submission of the paper should be in one of 
 the following formats: PostScript, PDF, RTF, or plain text. Please, use 
 8.5" x 11" 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:
