 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.

 Our program to date:

 - Martin Abadi (CS, UCSC) [Computer Security]
 - Samson Abramsky (CS, Oxford) [Games in Computer Science]
 - Sergei Artemov (CS, CUNY New York) [Proof Polynomials]
 - Patrick Blackburn (INRIA Lorraine) [Lectures on Hybrid Logic]
 - Craig Boutilier (CS, University of Toronto) [Logical and Statistical
 Methods in AI]
 - Joan Bresnan (Linguistics, Stanford) [Optimality Theory]
 - Paul Dekker (Philosophy, Amsterdam) [Dynamics, Semantics, Pragmatics]
 - R.E. Jennings (Philosophy, Simon Fraser University) [Logicalization]
 - Ed Keenan (Linguistics, UCLA) [A Mathematical Theory of Grammatical
 - Phokion Kolaitis (CS, UCSC) [Constraint Satisfaction, Complexity, and
 - Larry Moss (Math, Indiana) [Dynamic Epistemic Logic]
 - Marc Pauly and Mike Wooldridge (Liverpool) [Modal Logic and Agents]
 - Fernando C.N. Pereira (Computer and Information Science, UPenn) [Machine
 Learning in Natural Language Processing]
 - Frank Veltman (Logic & Cognitive Science, Amsterdam) [Logic in AI]
 - Dag Westerstahl (Philosophy, Stockholm) and Stanley Peters (Linguistics,
 Stanford) [Generalized Quantifiers]

 In addition to lectures, the event will include workshops, evening lectures
 by distinguished researchers, as well as sporting events, party and more.

 There will be a limited number of scholarships awarded to eligible students.
