E. W. Beth Dissertation Prize: call for submissions.

Since 2002, FoLLI (the European Association for
Logic, Language, and Information, www.folli.org)
awards the E. W. Beth Dissertation Prize to
outstanding dissertations in the fields of Logic,
Language, and Information. Submissions are
invited for 2005. The prize will be awarded to
the best dissertation which resulted in a Ph.D.
in the year 2005. The dissertations will be
judged on technical depth and strength,
originality, and impact made in at least two of
the three fields of Logic, Language, and Computation.

Who qualifies
Nominations of candidates are admitted who were
awarded a Ph.D. degree in the areas of Logic,
Language, or Information between January 1st,
2005 and December 31st, 2005. There is no
restriction on the nationality of the candidate
or the university where the Ph.D. was granted.
After a careful consideration, FoLLI has decided
to accept only dissertations written in English.
Dissertations produced in 2005 but not written in
English or not translated will be allowed for
submission, after translation, also with the call next year (for 2006).

The prize consists of

* an invitation to submit the thesis (or a
revised version of it) to the new series of books
in Logic, Language and Information to be
