Dear all,

Here is an update on ESSLLI 2021 (26 July-13 August -- https://esslli2021.unibz.it/).

First a note for those who have not yet registered or completed their payment. Please consider that for logistic reasons, we will close the registration and the possibility to pay the registration fee and thus finalize the registration on ***21 July at midnight (CEST)*** (and not on 25 July, as previously announced).

Then news for all. The great program of courses and workshops is complemented by three evening lectures and a dense social program.

*Evening lectures* (Wednesdays): 28 July Jennifer Culbertson (University of Edinburgh)

Cognitive biases in learning and generalization shape language 4 August: Stephen Clark (Cambridge Quantum Computing) -- R.T.Oehrle Memorial lecture

Categorial Grammar + Distributional Semantics = Quantum NLP 11 August: Christos Papadimitriou (Columbia University)

How does the brain beget the mind?

*Social Program*:

"My PhD: before, during, after" (Mondays)
