33rd European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information - ESSLLI 2022
8-19 August, 2022, Galway, Ireland


15 June 2021: Course Title submission deadline (mandatory)
22 June 2021: Final submission
14 September 2021: Notification

Under the auspices of the Association for Logic, Language, and 
Information (FoLLI), the European Summer School in Logic, Language, and 
Information (ESSLLI) runs every year. Except for 2021, where the school 
will be virtual, it runs in a different European country each
year. It takes place over two weeks in the summer, hosts approximately 
50 different courses at both introductory and advanced levels, and 
attracts around 400 participants from all over the world.

Since 1989, ESSLLI has been providing outstanding interdisciplinary 
educational opportunities in the fields of Computer Science, Cognitive 
Science, Linguistics, Logic, Philosophy, and beyond. It comes from a 
community which recognizes that advances in our common areas require the 
contributions of multiple interrelated disciplines.

The main focus of ESSLLI is the interface between linguistics, logic and 
computation, with special emphasis in human linguistic and cognitive 
ability. Courses, both introductory and advanced, cover a wide variety 
of topics within the combined areas of interest: Logic and Computation, 
Computation and Language, and Language and Logic. Workshops are also 
organized, providing opportunities for in-depth discussion of issues at 
the forefront of research, as well as a series of invited evening lectures.


Proposals for courses and workshops at ESSLLI 2022 are invited in all 
areas of Logic, Linguistics and Computer 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 program 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 cannot 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 partial or complete coverage of travel and 
accommodation expenses from other sources.


Each proposal should fall under one of the following categories.

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

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


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

Course and Workshop proposals can be submitted by no more than two 
lecturers/organizers and they are presented by no more than these two 
lecturers/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 

Proposals of Courses given at ESSLLI the previous year will have a lower 
priority of being accepted in the current year.

Proposals must be submitted in PDF format via:


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. Information on the proposer and course:
Will your course appeal to students outside of the main discipline of 
the course?
Include information on your experience in the intensive one-week 
interdisciplinary setting
Include evidence that the course proposer is an excellent lecturer

e. Information from workshop organizers:
Include information on relevant preceding meetings and events, if applicable
Include information about potential external funding for participants

By June 15:
You are asked to submit in EasyChair at least the name(s) of the 
instructor(s), the ESSLLI area+course level and a short abstract.

By June 22:
Your submission must be completed by uploading a PDF with the actual 
proposal as detailed above.

Please submit your proposals to


CHILDCARE: If there is enough interest, ESSLLI will provide information on
private child care services available during the summer school.
The EACSL will support one Logic and Computation course or workshop 
addressing topics of interest to Computer Science Logic (CSL) 
conferences. The selected course or workshop will be designated an EACSL 
course/workshop in the programme. If you wish to be considered for this, 
please indicate so in your proposal.
