Since 2002, FoLLI (the Association for Logic, Language, and Information,
http://www.folli.info) has awarded the E.W. Beth Dissertation Prize to
outstanding dissertations in the fields of Logic, Language, and
Information. We invite submissions for the best dissertation which
resulted in a Ph.D. degree awarded in 2016.

in the areas of Logic, Language, or Information between January 1st,
2016 and December 31st, 2016. Theses must be written in English;
however, the Committee accepts submissions of English translations of
theses originally written in other languages, and for which a PhD was
awarded in the preceding two years (i.e. between January 1st, 2014 and
December 31st, 2015). There is no restriction on the nationality of the
candidate or on the university where the Ph.D. was granted.
The prize consists of:
-a donation of 2500 euros provided by the E.W. Beth Foundation
-an invitation to submit the thesis (or a revised version of
it) to the FoLLI Publications on Logic, Language and
