Featured Linguist!

Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Meeting Description: The 7th DGfS fall school on Computational Linguistics will be held in Heidelberg on September 2-13, 2013. The CL Fall School is a biennial event for Bachelor-level and Master-level students who wish to broaden their knowledge of techniques and methods used in natural language processing, in particular of innovative and emerging fields in computational linguistics not traditionally taught in standard degree programmes. All lectures are given in English and are open to an international audience.

In 2013, the following courses will be offered:

Course 1: Distributional Semantics
Lecturer: Alessandro Lenci (Pisa)

Course 2: Intelligent CALL and Learner Corpora
Lecturers: Detmar Meurers (Tübingen) & Heike Zinsmeister (Stuttgart)

Course 3: Textual Entailment
Lecturer: Sebastian Pado (Heidelberg)

Course 4: Linguistic Annotation
Lecturer: Ines Rehbein (Potsdam)

Tracks are non-concurrent (i.e. any number of tracks can be booked), with one lecture (90 minutes) in each track each weekday. Courses can be taken for credit (4 ECTS credits per course). This requires the definition of a project in collaboration with the lecturer and autonomous completion of the project after the course.
