                European Summer School in Logic, Language, and Information

                            Aix-en-Provence, France
                             August 11 - 22, 1997

                        | GENERAL INFORMATION |

Logic, Language and Information have attracted and brought together a large
number of active researchers from disciplines such as Logic, Computer Science,
Linguistics and Cognitive Science, who consider the use of logical techniques
(broadly conceived) as a thread unifying their research efforts. The European
Summer School in LLI (ESSLLI) has become the main meeting place for young
researchers and research students in this rapidly growing field. ESSLLI is a
unique, interdisciplinary event, with no counterparts in Europe or elsewhere
in the world.

The main focus of the summer school is the interface between logic,
linguistics and computation as far as it concerns the modelling of human
language and cognitive abilities. The 1997 summer school programme includes
courses, workshops and symposia covering a variety of topics within six areas
of interest: Logic, Language, Computation, Logic and Computation, Computation
and Language, Language and Logic.

ESSLLI'97 will take place at the Aix-en-Provence Faculty of Arts(University
of Aix-Marseille I). This Faculty is close to the old town centre. There are
regular connections by bus (25 mns) from the international airport of Marseille
and by train (30mns) from Marseille. The Faculty is at a 10 minute walking
distance from the railway station.
