- The ACM Special Interest Group on Logic (SIGLOG), the European Association for Theoretical Computer Science (EATCS), the European Association for Computer Science Logic (EACSL), and the Kurt Goedel Society (KGS) are pleased to announce that
Georg Gottlob, Christoph Koch, Reinhard Pichler, Klaus U. Schulz, and Luc Segouﬁn
have been selected as the winners of the 2021 Alonzo Church Award for Outstanding Contributions to Logic and Computation for fundamental work on logic-based web data extraction and querying tree-structured data, published in:
- (1) Georg Gottlob and Christoph Koch. “Monadic Datalog and the Expressive Power of Lan- guages for Web Information Extraction.” Journal of the ACM (JACM) 51.1 (2004): 74-113.
- (2) Georg Gottlob, Christoph Koch, and Klaus U. Schulz. “Conjunctive Queries Over Trees.” Journal of the ACM (JACM) 53.2 (2006): 238-272.

- THE CONTRIBUTION
Paper (1) establishes a comprehensive logical theory of Web data extraction. At its core, this is the problem of selecting relevant nodes (subtrees) from HTML text. While the set of relevant nodes can be expressed in Monadic Second-Order logic (MSO) over ﬁnite trees, MSO has high computationally complexity. The authors prove that Monadic Datalog on trees has exactly the same expressive power as full MSO and that, surprisingly, evaluating Monadic Datalog is feasible in time linear in the size of query and input tree. These results greatly inﬂuenced theoretical and applied research, and gave rise to logic-based systems for data extraction that have been successfully used in industry.
Papers (2,3,4) present deep investigations into logical queries over tree-structured data. The complexity of evaluating XPath, a key technology in Web browsers and other systems, was unclear, and available implementations required exponential time. Paper (2) gives a full characterization of, and a dichotomy theorem for, the complexity of conjunctive queries on various representations of trees. Paper (3) shows that the full XPath standard can be evaluated in PTIME and proposes a logical core which has become seminal to research eﬀorts at the intersection of Web data processing and (modal) logics. Finally, paper (4) establishes the precise complexity of evaluating XPath fragments.
Computational and technological developments that incorporate natural language and reasoning methods are proliferating. Adequate coverage encounters difficult problems related to partiality, underspecification, agents, and context dependency, which are signature features of information in nature, natural languages, and reasoning.
The session covers theoretical work, applications, approaches, and techniques for computational models of information, language (artificial, human, or natural in other ways), reasoning. The goal is to promote computational systems and related models of thought, mental states, reasoning, and other cognitive processes.

- IMPORTANT DATES:
Dates for the first submission cycle are as follows.
First cycle abstract submission: Jun 11, 2021 Full paper submission: Jun 18, 2021 Reviews sent to authors: Jul 31, 2021 Rebuttal phase: Aug 1-5, 2021 Notification: Aug 13, 2021
- Under the auspices of the Association for Logic, Language, and Information (FoLLI), the European Summer School in Logic, Language, and Information (ESSLLI) runs every year. Except for 2021, where the school will be virtual, it runs in a different European country each year. It takes place over two weeks in the summer, hosts approximately 50 different courses at both introductory and advanced levels, and attracts around 400 participants from all over the world.
Since 1989, ESSLLI has been providing outstanding interdisciplinary educational opportunities in the fields of Computer Science, Cognitive Science, Linguistics, Logic, Philosophy, and beyond. It comes from a community which recognizes that advances in our common areas require the contributions of multiple interrelated disciplines.
The main focus of ESSLLI is the interface between linguistics, logic and computation, with special emphasis in human linguistic and cognitive ability. Courses, both introductory and advanced, cover a wide variety of topics within the combined areas of interest: Logic and Computation, Computation and Language, and Language and Logic. Workshops are also organized, providing opportunities for in-depth discussion of issues at the forefront of research, as well as a series of invited evening lectures.
- TOPICS AND FORMAT
Proposals for courses and workshops at ESSLLI 2022 are invited in all areas of Logic, Linguistics and Computer 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 can not 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 partial or complete coverage of travel and accommodation expenses from other sources.
- CATEGORIES: each proposal should fall under one of the following categories.
- FOUNDATIONAL COURSES: Such courses are designed to present the basics of a research area, to people with no prior knowledge in that area. They should be of elementary level, without prerequisites in the course's topic, though possibly assuming a level of general scientific maturity in the relevant discipline. They should enable researchers from related disciplines to develop a level of comfort with the fundamental concepts and techniques of the course's topic, thereby contributing to the interdisciplinary nature of our research community.
- INTRODUCTORY COURSES: Introductory courses are central to ESSLLI's mission. They are intended to introduce a research field to students, young researchers, and other non-specialists, and to foster a sound understanding of its basic methods and techniques. Such courses should enable researchers from related disciplines to develop some comfort and competence in the topic considered. Introductory courses in a cross-disciplinary area may presuppose general knowledge of the related disciplines.
- ADVANCED COURSES: Advanced courses are targeted primarily to graduate students who wish to acquire a level of comfort and understanding in the current research of a field.
- WORKSHOPS: Workshops focus on specialized topics, usually of current interest. Workshop organizers are responsible for soliciting papers and selecting the workshop program. They are also responsible for publishing proceedings if they decide to have proceedings.
- PROPOSAL GUIDELINES
Course and workshop proposals should closely follow these guidelines to ensure full consideration.
Course and Workshop proposals can be submitted by no more than two lecturers/organizers and they are presented by no more than these two lecturers/organizers. All instructors and organizers must possess a PhD or equivalent degree by the submission deadline.
Course proposals should mention explicitly the intended course category. Proposals for introductory courses should indicate the intended level, for example as it relates to standard textbooks and monographs in the area. Proposals for advanced courses should specify the prerequisites in detail.
Proposals of Courses given at ESSLLI the previous year will have a lower priority of being accepted in the current year. Proposals must be submitted in PDF format via: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=esslli2022 and include all of the following:
- Personal information for each proposer: Name, affiliation, contact address, email, homepage (optional)
- General proposal information: Title, category
- Contents information: Abstract of up to 150 words, Motivation and description (up to two pages), Tentative outline, Expected level and prerequisites, Appropriate references (e.g. textbooks, monographs, proceedings, surveys)
- Information on the proposer and course: Will your course appeal to students outside of the main discipline of the course? Include information on your experience in the intensive one-week interdisciplinary setting Include evidence that the course proposer is an excellent lecturer.
- Information from workshop organizers: Include information on relevant preceding meetings and events, if applicable Include information about potential external funding for participants.
- SUBMISSION INFORMATION
- By June 15: You are asked to submit in EasyChair at least the name(s) of the instructor(s), the ESSLLI area+course level and a short abstract.
- By June 22: Your submission must be completed by uploading a PDF with the actual proposal as detailed above.
- CHILDCARE: If there is enough interest, ESSLLI will provide information on private child care services available during the summer school.
- EACSL SPONSORSHIP
The EACSL will support one Logic and Computation course or workshop addressing topics of interest to Computer Science Logic (CSL) conferences. The selected course or workshop will be designated an EACSL course/workshop in the programme. If you wish to be considered for this, please indicate so in your proposal.
