From: Kathleen McCoy <>
Subject: NSF Traineeships at the University of Delaware

Would you please post this announcement on appropriate bulletin
boards at your institution? Please note these traineeships are
intended for students who are beginning graduate study in Fall 1994.



 Department of Computer and Information Sciences
 University of Delaware

 The Department of Computer and Information Sciences at the
 University of Delaware is recruiting students for five National
 Science Foundation graduate traineeships in the area of natural
 language human-computer interfaces. These graduate traineeships
 will be awarded to outstanding students who enter the PhD program
 in the Fall of 1994, and will continue for five years (subject to
 the student making satisfactory progress toward the PhD and no
 discontinuation of the grant by NSF). Each traineeship covers
 tuition and a 12-month stipend of at least $14,000. Opportuni-
 ties exist for summer research at industrial sites and interna-
 tional research laboratories.

 The Department has three faculty (Sandra Carberry, Kathleen
 McCoy, and K. Vijayashanker) whose research is devoted to the
 development of natural language human-computer interfaces, and
 another faculty member (Dan Chester) with significant interests
 in the area. Current research includes grammatical formalisms,
 parsing, understanding, generation, discourse, collaborative
 dialogue systems, plan recognition, user modeling, and augmenta-
 tive communication. In addition, faculty from the Department of
 Linguistics and the Department of Psychology have related
 interests in syntax, semantics, pragmatics, psycholinguistics,
 phonology, and text processing. The Department also maintains an
 affiliation with the Rehabilitation Engineering Center of the
 A.I.duPont Institute, which pursues applied research on the
 development of communication aids for disabled individuals.

 These graduate traineeships are restricted by NSF to United
 States citizens and permanent residents. We particularly
 encourage eligible women and minority applicants. Interested
 students should contact Sandra Carberry (
 or Kathleen McCoy ( via email or write to
