      > The main focus of ESSLLI is on the interface between linguistics,
      > logic and computation. 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.
      >
      > ESSLLI courses cover a wide variety of topics within six areas of
      > interest: Logic, Computation, Language, Logic and Computation,
      > Computation and Language, Language and Logic.
      >
      > Foundational courses aim to provide truly introductory courses into a
      > field. The courses presuppose absolutely no background knowledge. In
      > particular, they should be accessible to people from other
      > disciplines.
      >
      > Introductory courses are intended to equip students and young
      > researchers with a good understanding of a field's basic methods and
      > techniques, and to allow experienced researchers from other fields to
      > acquire the key competences of neighboring disciplines, thus
      > encouraging the development of a truly interdisciplinary research
      > community.
      >
      > Advanced courses are intended to enable participants to acquire more
      > specialized knowledge about topics they are already familiar with.
      >
      > Workshops are intended to encourage collaboration and the
      > cross-fertilization of ideas by stimulating in-depth discussion of
      > issues which are at the forefront of current research in the field. In
      > these workshops, students and researchers can give presentations of
      > their research.
      >
      > In addition to courses and workshops there are evening lectures, a
      > student session and a number of satellite events (to be announced
      > later). The aim of the student session is to provide Masters and PhD
      > students with an opportunity to present their own work to a
      > professional audience, thereby getting informed feedback on their own
      > results. Unlike workshops, the student session is not tied to any
      > specific theme.
