Meeting Description:

The University of Zadar, organized by the Linguistics Department, the Department
of Library and Information Science, and the Psychology Department, in
cooperation with the Institute of Croatian Language and Linguistics, invite all
enthusiastic and motivated students, researchers, and colleagues with a strong
interest in interdisciplinary approaches to language, cognition and computation
to participate at the summer school, workshop and round table covering topics like:

- Language resources and digital annotation technologies and standards
- Computational approaches to language processing and analysis
- Computational modeling of cognitive aspects of language

The courses will cover the domains of language resources (digitalization,
annotation, standards & technologies), grammar induction and machine learning
related to languages and linguistics, quantitative linguistic analysis,
cognitive models of language related faculties, computation related to text and
language processing. The program covers the following courses (in random order):
