Fluid Construction Grammar (FCG) is currently the only computational construction grammar formalism that achieves full bi-directionality (i.e. parsing and production) using the same set of constructions. This two-day tutorial on FCG is open to all researchers who are interested in Construction Grammar formalisms and have sufficient background (particularly of a technical nature) to allow active participation. The ideal participant would be familiar with techniques from symbolic programming, computational linguistics and artificial intelligence. Please consult the website for further information on the venue and the registration procedure.
