Rutgers University Hosting NASSLLI 2016
The North American Summer School on Logic, Language, and Information (NASSLLI) is a summer school that meets approximately every other summer. It is geared towards gradaute students and advanced undergraduate students in fields such as Cognitive Science, Computer Science, Linguistics, and Philosophy. Instructors are senior researchers who have helped to found and advance the research in these fields, as well as junior researchers helping to expand upon previous work and shape new directions of these fields. One of the strongest aspects of NASSLLI is an excitement about interdisciplinary research that brings people across these fields together.
