CRA-W/CDC Summer School on Logic Programming and Computational Logic http://www.cs.nmsu.edu/~ipivkina/compulog.htm New Mexico State University Las Cruces, NM, USA July 24-27, 2008 New Mexico State University is happy to announce the CRA-W/CDC Summer School on Logic Programming and Computational Logic. The summer school will be held on the campus of New Mexico State University in beautiful Las Cruces, New Mexico. The summer school is intended to encourage WOMEN GRADUATE STUDENTS, POST-DOCTORAL STUDENTS, and YOUNG RESEARCHERS to develop interest and expertise in the important areas of constraints, logic programming, answer set programming, computational logic and their applications. Exceptional undergraduate students in their senior year are also encouraged to attend. The summer school will include lectures as well as other events aimed at providing a complete and fulfilling learning experience. The lectures will be given by internationally renowned Researchers who have made significant contributions to the advancement of these disciplines. The summer school is a good opportunity for quickly acquiring background knowledge on important areas of computational logic. The summer school will consist of six 1/2 day tutorials on the following topics: * Theoretical Foundations of Logic Programming [Miroslaw Truszczynski, U. of Kentucky] * Answer Set Programming [Torsten Schaub, U. of Potsdam] * Implementation and Execution Models for Logic Programming [Manuel Hermenegildo, Polytechnic Univ. of Madrid] * Logic Programming and Multi-agent Systems [Francesca Toni, Imperial College] * Foundations of Constraint and Constraint Logic Programming [TBA] * Foundations of Semantic Web and Computational Logic [Sheila McIlraith, University of Toronto] There is no charge for participation to the summer school and a number of fellowships are available to women participants, that will cover all reasonable travel expenses. Applicants are asked to submit an application for admission to the summer school composed of the following items: 1. a one page statement of interest, explaining your research background and what you expect to gain from the summer school 2. a short (2-page) vitae Applications should be submitted in electronic form to: firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com All submissions will be acknowledged with an email. If you do not receive acknowledgment within 3 working days, please email Enrico Pontelli (firstname.lastname@example.org). Lodging will be available at local hotels; we will also provide a number of affordable accommodations on the NMSU campus.
