The 13th European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information
(ESSLLI'01) takes place at the University of Helsinki, Helsinki, Finland,
during two weeks in August, from August 13 until 24.

The ESSLLI Summer Schools are organised under the auspices of FoLLI
(http://www.folli.uva.nl), the European Association for Logic, Language
and Information.

The main focus of the Summer School is the interface between linguistics,
logic and computation. Foundational, introductory and advanced courses,
workshops and special events cover a wide variety of topics within six
areas of interest:

  * Logic
  * Language
  * Computation
  * Logic and Language
  * Logic and Computation
  * Language and Computation

The number of courses offered is over 50. Previous summer schools have
been highly successful, attracting around 500 students from Europe and
elsewhere. The school has developed into an important meeting place and
forum for discussion for students, researchers and IT professionals
interested in the interdisciplinary study of Logic, Language and
Information. In addition to courses, workshops and evening lectures, there
will be a Student Session and a social program.


The full scientific program can be found at our home page. Evening
Lectures are given by

 * Edward L. Keenan "Spinoza Lecture" (UCLA)
 * Yannis Moschovakis "Vienna Circle Lecture" (UCLA)
 * Keith Devlin (Saint Mary's College, California)
 * Jaakko Hintikka (Boston & Helsinki)
 * Bonnie Webber (Edinburgh)


Please visit our home page for detailed information.


By plane to Helsinki airport and then a 30-minute nonstop coach or taxi
service to the main railway station. From the railway station 5-minute walk

the capital of Finland and one of the nine European Cities of Culture for
the millennium. It is located at the south coast of Finland, within an

regular train services, or using the ferry services operating within the
Baltic region.

The scientific program of ESSLLI'01 will be held in the University Main
Building, located on the University city campus at the centre of Helsinki.
The accommodation will be arranged at the University Summer Hotel close to
the city campus. The accommodation includes sauna and breakfast.
