computational linguists who have an interest in Romance languages;
(ii) to introduce the various linguistic applications of computers
to students and staff in Romance language departments. Speakers
will be from Canada, France, Great Britain, Italy and Spain.

The probable cost is 40 pounds (covering registration and a buffet
lunch on the Saturday), with a discount for students.
