31ST EUROPEAN SUMMER SCHOOL IN LOGIC, LANGUAGE AND INFORMATION
The 31st edition of ESSLLI (European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information) will take place from 5 August to 16 August 2019 at University of Latvia, Riga, Latvia. The European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information is an event organized every year in a different European country under the auspices of the Association for Logic, Language and Information.
The ESSLLI Summer Schools are famous for their pleasant atmosphere and for the social and friendly nature of its participants.
Of course, on an event of the scale like that of ESSLLI mishappenings in conduct cannot be logically excluded. We therefore have to emphasize that the ESSLLI organization does not tolerate behavior that any decent being can conceive to be inappropriate. ESSLLI expels all sorts of physical and mental harassment, all sorts of discrimination and unwarranted incrimination, and any other unlawful acts.
In order to secure against such mishappenings ESSLLI provides for a Trusted Person to whom one can report experienced and observed misbehavior of the kinds mentioned. The Trusted Person maintains strict confidentiality, meaning that (s)he does not communicate anything (s)he has heard in his/her position, if not explicitly licensed by the Trust Seeking Person. If so instructed, the Trusted Person is also appointed to act so as to prevent further misbehavior.
The Trusted Person at ESSLLI-2019 is Juris Borzovs

TOPICS AND FORMAT
Proposals for courses and workshops at ESSLLI 2019 are invited in all areas of Logic, Linguistics and Computing Sciences. Cross-disciplinary and innovative topics are particularly encouraged. Each course and workshop will consist of five 90 minute sessions, offered daily
(Monday-Friday) in a single week. Proposals for two-week courses should be structured and submitted as two independent one-week courses, e.g. as an introductory course followed by an advanced one. In such cases, the ESSLLI program committee reserves the right to accept just one of the two proposals.
All instructional and organizational work at ESSLLI is performed completely on a voluntary basis, so as to keep participation fees to a minimum. However, organizers and instructors have their registration fees waived and are reimbursed for travel and accommodation expenses up to a level to be determined and communicated with the proposal notification. ESSLLI can only guarantee reimbursement for at most one course/workshop organizer, and cannot guarantee full reimbursement of travel costs for lecturers or organizers from outside of Europe. The ESSLLI organizers would appreciate any help in controlling the School’s expenses by seeking complete coverage of travel and accommodation expenses from other sources.
