                      Summer School and Workshop on
                 Proof Theory, Computation and Complexity

Preliminary Program and Call for Participation

We plan the following courses and workshop for graduate students and
researchers.  Like for last year's events on Proof Theory and
Computation (Dresden) and Proof, Computation, Complexity (Tuebingen), we
aim at a meeting where people have plenty of time to exchange ideas.
The summer school consists of eight advanced courses; the workshop takes
place in the last two days.

For participating in the summer school we ask for a small fee (currently
undetermined).  We are looking into the possibility of providing grants
to participants who ask for them.  Registration is requested, please
send an email to <mailto:PTEvent@Janeway.Inf.TU-Dresden.DE>, making sure
you include a very brief bio (5-10 lines) stating your experience,
interests, home page, etc.  We will select applicants in case of
excessive demand.  We will provide assistance in finding an
accommodation in Dresden.
