etc.). Thanks,   -Alessio Guglielmi]

                      Summer School and Workshop on
                 Proof Theory, Computation and Complexity
                     Technische Universitaet Dresden
                           June 23-July 4, 2003


Call for Participation

We plan the following courses and workshop for graduate students and
researchers.  Like for last year's events on `Proof Theory and
Computation' (Dresden) and `Proof, Computation, Complexity' (Tuebingen),
we aim at a meeting where people have plenty of time to exchange ideas.
The summer school consists of eight advanced courses; the workshop is
integral part of the school and takes place in the last two days.

We ask for a participation fee of 100 EUR. A limited number of grants
covering all expenses is available.  Registration is requested before
May 25, 2003; please send an email to PTEvent at Janeway.Inf.TU-Dresden.DE,
making sure you include a very brief bio (5-10 lines) stating your
experience, interests, home page, etc.  We will select applicants in
case of excessive demand.  We will provide assistance in finding an
accommodation in Dresden.
