CALL FOR PARTICIPATION *** REMINDER ***

It is my privilege to invite you to participate in the 18th
International Conference on Computational Linguistics. COLING takes
place every two years under the auspices of the International Committee
on Computational Linguistices (ICCL). The conference attracts scientists
and engineers throughout the world to an exchange of original scientific
ideas, research methods and results in the field of computational
linguistics.

For the first time the biennial International Conference on
Computational Linguists will be hosted by more than one country. It will
take place in three cities in three neighbouring countries in the heart
of Europe: Saarbr�cken, Luxembourg and Nancy. COLING 2000 is supported
by the Charta of the SaarLorLux Universities, especially by the Centre
Universitaire in Luxembourg, the Universit� Nancy II, and the
Universit�t des Saarlandes.

The conference, tutorial and workshops will take place as follows:
- Tutorials: Nancy (29/30 July, 2000)
- Main Conference: Saarbr�cken (30 July - 4 August, 2000)
- Workshops: Luxembourg (5/6 August, 2000)

Bus transportation between the conference venues will be available.

The conference, tutorial and workshop language will be English.

COLING 2000 will be the ideal place to:

- learn about the latest developments in the field
- see demos of new research systems and products
- study new trends and techniques in the tutorials
- exhibit your language technologies for the 21st century
- hire needed specialists before somebody else does

Keynote lectures will be presented by:

- Angela Friederici, Max Planck Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience,
Leipzig, Germany
- Fernando Pereira, WhizBang! Labs, USA

In addition, please check out:

- the conference programme ( http://www.coling.org/programme.html )
- the workshop programme ( http://www.coling.org/workshops.html )
- the tutorial programme ( http://www.coling.org/tutorials.html )

At the conference, we will provide space for announcing job openings, as
well as a sign-up desk and rooms for job interviews.

Check out our low conference fees: http://www.coling.org/reg.html .

To increase student participation, we have decided on very favourable
conference fees for bona fide students. Students who would still not be
able to attend for financial reasons, please contact us at:
orgcoling.org. If you live and work in an economically disadvantaged
country and have no possibility of obtaining funding or if you are
experiencing special personal hardships, we will try to help.

Upon registering, we also offer assistance for accommodation.
Furthermore, we will also arrange for inexpensive student accommodation.

We believe you will also like our cultural program; the highlights will
be an all-day excursion to Strasbourg, France, and the conference
banquet.

I hope to see you all in Nancy, Saarbr�cken and Luxembourg

Hans Uszkoreit

Chair of Organization Committee
