CALL FOR COURSE AND WORKSHOP PROPOSALS
North American Summer School in Logic, Language and Information
June 23-27 2014
University of Maryland, College Park
The sixth NASSLLI (after previous editions at UT Austin, Stanford University, Indiana University and UCLA) will be hosted at the University of Maryland, College Park, June 23-27 2014. The summer school, aimed at graduate students and advanced undergraduates in a wide variety of fields, is loosely modeled on the long-running ESSLLI series in Europe. It will consist of a number of courses and workshops, selected on the basis of proposals. By default, courses and workshops meet for 90 minutes on each of five days.
Proposals are invited for courses or workshops that present interdisciplinary work between the areas of logic, linguistics, computer science, cognitive science, philosophy and artificial intelligence, though work in just one area is within the scope of the summer school if it can be applied in other fields. Examples of possible topics would include e.g. logics for communication, computational semantics, modal logics, game theory and decision theory, dynamic semantics, machine learning, Bayesian cognitive modeling, probabilistic models of language and communication, and automated theorem proving.
