Workshop: NASSLLI 2018 Student Session

NASSLLI​ ​2018​ ​Student​ ​Session​:
June 23-29, 2018, Carnegie Mellon University (Pittsburgh)

The North American Summer School for Logic, Language, and Information (NASSLLI) presents a cross-disciplinary perspective on how information is represented, communicated and manipulated by human minds and by machines. Courses and introductory boot camps at the Summer School are taught by outstanding faculty from Cognitive Science, Computer Science, Linguistics, Philosophy, and Psychology.

A Student Session will be held during the NASSLLI 2018 summer school. The Student Session provides students with the opportunity to present their own research in a context to receive excellent feedback from peers and established researchers.

Graduate and advanced undergraduate students1 are invited to submit abstracts of no more than two pages 1 in any of the fields related to the school. Abstracts should represent original and unpublished work (or work in progress). All co-authors must be students and no one should (co-)author more than one submission. Minorities, women, and students from underrepresented groups are especially encouraged to apply.

Abstracts should be submitted to:
