Call for Course and Workshop Proposals

29th European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information - ESSLLI 2017
17-28 July, 2017, Toulouse, France
https://www.irit.fr/esslli2017

IMPORTANT DATES

15 July 2016: Proposal submission deadline
30 September 2016: Notification

SUBMISSION PORTAL
Please submit your proposals here:

https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=esslli2017


TOPICS AND FORMAT

Proposals for courses and workshops at ESSLLI 2017 are invited in all areas of Logic, Linguistics and Computing Sciences. Cross-disciplinary and innovative topics are particularly encouraged.

Each course and workshop will consist of five 90 minute sessions, offered daily (Monday-Friday) in a single week. Proposals for two-week courses should be structured and submitted as two independent one-week courses, e.g. as an introductory course followed by an advanced one. In such cases, the ESSLLI programme committee reserves the right to accept just one of the two proposals.

All instructional and organizational work at ESSLLI is performed completely on a voluntary basis, so as to keep participation fees to a minimum. However, organizers and instructors have their registration fees waived, and are reimbursed for travel and accommodation expenses up to a level to be determined and communicated with the proposal notification. ESSLLI can only guarantee reimbursement for at most one course/workshop organizer, and can not guarantee full reimbursement of travel costs for lecturers or organizers from outside of Europe. The ESSLLI organizers would appreciate any help in controlling the School's expenses by seeking complete coverage of travel and accommodation expenses from other sources.

CATEGORIES

Each proposal should fall under one of the following categories.

* FOUNDATIONAL COURSES *
Such courses are designed to present the basics of a research area, to people with no prior knowledge in that area. They should be of elementary level, without prerequisites in the course's topic, though possibly assuming a level of general scientific maturity in the relevant discipline. They should enable researchers from related disciplines to develop a level of comfort with the fundamental concepts and techniques of the course's topic, thereby contributing to the interdisciplinary nature of our research community.

* INTRODUCTORY COURSES *
Introductory courses are central to ESSLLI's mission. They are intended to introduce a research field to students, young researchers, and other non-specialists, and to foster a sound understanding of its basic methods and techniques. Such courses should enable researchers from related disciplines to develop some comfort and competence in the topic considered. Introductory courses in a cross-disciplinary area may presuppose general knowledge of the related disciplines.

* ADVANCED COURSES *
Advanced courses are targeted primarily to graduate students who wish to acquire a level of comfort and understanding in the current research of a field.

* WORKSHOPS *
Workshops focus on specialized topics, usually of current interest. Workshops organizers are responsible for soliciting papers and selecting the workshop programme. They are also responsible for publishing proceedings if they decide to have proceedings.

PROPOSAL GUIDELINES

Course and workshop proposals should follow closely the following guidelines to ensure full consideration.

Each course proposal can be submitted by no more than two instructors, and each workshop by no more than two organizers. All instructors and organizers must possess a PhD or equivalent degree by the submission deadline.

Course proposals should mention explicitly the intended course category. Proposals for introductory courses should indicate the intended level, for example as it relates to standard textbooks and monographs in the area. Proposals for advanced courses should specify the prerequisites in detail.

Proposals must be submitted in PDF format via:

https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=esslli2017

and include all of the following:

a. Personal information for each proposer: Name, affiliation, contact
address, email, homepage (optional)

b. General proposal information: Title, category

c. Contents information:
Abstract of up to 150 words
Motivation and description (up to two pages)
Tentative outline
Expected level and prerequisites
Appropriate references (e.g. textbooks, monographs, proceedings, surveys)

d. Practical information:
Relevant preceding meetings and events, if applicable
Potential external funding for participants

An exciting new paper from our lab. I want to say it's one of the most important pieces of work we ever did, but I guess I'm just being self-congratulatory, so like Trump, I'm not actually going to say it, but just say that I want to say it but won't actually say it... 

At the very least, it's a good attempt to get to grips with a very tough problem.

Great to hear you opinion on this, Titus. So it's not just me being my usual vain and arrogant self :) This paper was an incredibly intense effort from the three of us. At one point it was even appearing in my dreams.

Half of Von der Leyen's dissertation was plagiarized, but this wasn't enough reason to take back her PhD title. What does this mean now for German academia? With this precedent, it will be hard to penalize anyone for plagiarism. This is a new low for Germany.

Ursula von der Leyen darf ihren Doktortitel behalten - und Plagiatsexperten wundern sich. Hat Promovieren in der Medizin überhaupt noch einen Sinn?

Yes, I understood that this was about integrity rather than about the credentialed knowledge. Living in a country where the MD who had been in the run for the Republican nomination is suspected of outright grift and has just endorsed the fascist who is in the lead, am more than a bit envious that the breach in expected levels of integrity was plagiarism in a document that would not have been written if Von der Leyen's degree had been granted here.

I wrote up some guidelines on doing a PhD with me. Suggestions for improvement welcome:
