For the past 23 years, the European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information (ESSLLI) has been organized every year by the Association for Logic, Language and Information (FoLLI) in different sites around Europe. The main focus of ESSLLI is on the interface between linguistics, logic and computation.
ESSLLI offers foundational, introductory and advanced courses, as well as workshops, covering a wide variety of topics within the three areas of interest: Language and Computation, Language and Logic, and Logic and Computation. Previous summer schools have been highly successful, attracting up to 500 students from Europe and elsewhere. The school has developed into an important meeting place and forum for discussion for students and researchers interested in the interdisciplinary study of Logic, Language and Information. During two weeks, around 50 courses and 10 workshops are offered to the attendants, each of 1.5 hours per day during a five days week, with up to seven parallel sessions. ESSLLI also includes a student session (papers and posters by students only, 1.5 hour per day during the two weeks) and four evening lectures by senior scientists in the covered areas.
In 2011, ESSLLI was held in Ljubljana, Slovenia and was organized by the Slovenian Language Technologies Society (SDJT), the Jožef Stefan Institute (IJS) and The Faculty of Mathematics and Physics (FMF) in Ljubljana, Slovenia. Chair of the Program Committee was Makoto Kanazawa (National Institute of Informatics, Japan), and Chair of the Organizing Committee was Darja Fišer (The University of Ljubljana, Slovenia).
