North American Summer School in Logic, Language and Information
June 23 - 29 2018
Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh PA

The eighth North American Summer School for Logic, Language, and
Information (NASSLLI) will be hosted by Carnegie Mellon University in
Pittsburgh, PA, from June 23 - June 29, 2018. The summer school is aimed at
graduate students and advanced undergraduates in the fields of Linguistics,
Computer Science, Cognitive Science, Logic, Philosophy, and other related
areas. NASSLLI brings these disciplines together with the goal of producing
excellence in the study of how minds and machines represent, communicate,
manipulate and reason with information. The NASSLLI community recognizes
that advances in modeling and analyzing these processes requires the
contributions of multiple inter-related disciplines. NASSLLI provides a
venue where students and researchers from one discipline can learn
approaches, frameworks and tools from related disciplines to apply to their
own work. Courses offered at NASSLLI range from intensive, graduate level
introductory courses to inter-disciplinary workshops featuring prominent
researchers presenting their work in progress.

NASSLLI 2018 will consist of a series of courses and workshops, most
running daily from Monday June 25 - Friday June 29.  In addition, there
will be intensive training in a small set of foundational topics the
weekend prior to the start of courses (Saturday June 23 - Sunday June 24).
Students will have the opportunity to present work at student sessions
throughout the event.

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 students are invited to submit
abstracts of no more than two pages 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 Abstracts should represent original and unpublished work (or work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
