About: The Student Session of the 29th European Summer School in Logic, Language, and Information (ESSLLI) will take place in Toulouse, France, July 17th to 28th ( We invite submissions of original, unpublished work from students in any area at the intersection of Logic & Language, Language & Computation, or Logic & Computation. Submissions will be reviewed by several experts in the field, and accepted papers will be presented orally or as posters and selected papers will appear in the Student Session proceedings by Springer. This is an excellent opportunity to receive valuable feedback from expert readers and to present your work to a diverse audience.

Oral/Poster Presentations: Note that there are two separate kinds of submissions, one for oral presentations and one for posters. This means that papers are directly submitted either as oral presentations or as poster presentations. Reviewing and ranking will be done separately. We particularly encourage submissions for posters, as they offer an excellent opportunity to present smaller research projects and research in progress.

Sponsorship and Prizes: Springer generously supports the ESSLLI Student Session by offering prizes for a total of 1000€ in Springer books. The best poster and the best talk will be awarded Springer book vouchers of 500€ each. The prizes are awarded based on the reviews of the submission as well as the oral/poster presentation.

ESSLLI 2017 will feature a wide range of foundational and advanced courses and workshops in all areas of Logic, Language, and Computation. For further information, including registration information and course listings, and for general inquiries about ESSLLI 2016, please consult the main ESSLLI 2017 page.


Below you can find the submission and publication policies for the Student Session.

Submission policies:

All authors must be students, i.e., authors may not have received their PhD degree before July 2017.

Submissions may be singly or jointly authored. No one may submit more than one singly and one jointly authored paper.
If a student wants to submit both to the Student Session and to another workshop hosted by ESSLLI 2017 the presentations should be different from each other.

Submissions should not be longer than 8 pages for an oral presentation and 4 pages for a poster presentation (including examples and references).

Submissions must be in PDF format. We strongly recommend to use the LNCS Springer class files for LaTeX2e, since accepted papers will have to be written in this format for the proceedings. (See below for more information.) If you do not use this template, make sure that your submission meets the following criteria: DIN A4 (21 cm x 29.7 cm), 4.5 cm top margin, 4 cm right margin, 6.5 cm bottom margin, 5 cm left margin, Times New Roman, 10 pts.

Submissions must be anonymous. That is, the submitted PDF file is not allowed to contain any information by which the author(s) can be identified, e.g., no author names.

Submissions must be received by February 7, 2017 February 14, 2017 (by 23:59 GMT time), and must be submitted through EasyChair.

Publication policies:

If a paper has been accepted for the program of the Student Session but the author(s) cannot attend the Student Session and present their work, the paper might not be accepted for publication.

Accepted papers will have to be written in LaTeX in standard LNCS format (10 pts), by using the Springer class files for LaTeX2e. (You can find more information about this format here.)

Authors are expected to improve their papers according to the the reviewers’ comments and suggestions.


Springer volumes in the LNCS series with the best papers of 2008-2009, the best papers of 2010-2011 and the best papers of 2012-2013 have been published. We aspire to publish a forthcoming volume for 2016-2017.
