We are pleased to announce the availability of a Beta release of XCES,
which instantiates the Corpus Encoding Standard (CES) DTDs for
linguistic corpora endorsed by the Expert Advisory Group for Language
Engineering Standards (EAGLES). XCES was developed by the Department
of Computer Science, Vassar College, and Equipe Langue et Dialogue,
LORIA/CNRS.

The current version includes a set of XSL stylesheets for cesDoc
documents. We are in the process of developing stylesheets for cesAna
and cesAlign documents.

We appreciate feedback on XCES. Please contact Nancy Ide
(idecs.vassar.edu) or Patrice Bonhomme (bonhommeloria.fr).

Message 2: New Program:European Masters in Clinical Linguistics

Date: Tue, 8 Feb 2000 18:43:26 +0200
From: Prof. Dr. Roelien Bastiaanse <emcllet.rug.nl>
Subject: New Program:European Masters in Clinical Linguistics

European Masters in Clinical Linguistics 

The overall aim of the project is a one-year university programme at 
advanced level, entitled European Master in Clinical Linguistics 
(EMCL for short), which integrates the areas of neurolinguistics and 
language and speech therapy in a meaningful way, and which aims 
at improving the quality of speech and language therapy itself and 
the assessment and treatment material used by speech and 
language therapists. 
The main target fields involved are (a) speech and language therapy, 
 and (b) linguistics, psychology and special education and similar 
degrees. The students following this programme will acquire the 
knowledge to assess and treat language impaired people more 
adequately, and to develop assessment and treatment materials 
which fulfil the relevant quality criteria. An additional aim of the 
programme is to raise language awareness among the students, so 
that they are better equipped to working in a multilingual 
environment. Therefore, the students are supposed to stay at least 
one trimester at a university abroad. 
The EMCL is an excellent preparation for a PhD in neurolinguistics. 
The programme will start in September 2000 at the universities of 
Groningen (The Netherlands), Tessaloniki (Greece) and Reading 
(UK). All courses will be taught in English and is sponsored by the 
EU, under Socrates.
