Subject: Visiting Fellowships at ITK
 Visiting Researcher
 at the
 Institute for Language Technology and AI
The Institute for Language Technology and Artificial Intelligence
(ITK) in Tilburg, Holland, offers fellowships for a stay at ITK up to
six months to qualified researchers in the fields of computational
linguistics, human-computer communication, databases, natural language
semantics and pragmatics, knowledge representation, machine learning
and AI-related subjects in general.
Our current and long-range interests and projects include dialogue
management, object orientation, machine learning of natural language,
dynamic interpretation theories, computer aided-systems engineering
and design methodologies. Of specific importance to us is the
integration - theoretical as well as practical - of these approaches
and technologies.
Interested researchers should submit a detailed CV with publications
(and for graduate students two letters of recommendation) and a broad
indication of their intended period of stay, to either of the
following institute directors:
 Harry C. Bunt Robert A. Meersman
 (natural language, AI) (databases, AI)
The fellowship may involve the reimbursement of travel, accommodation
in Tilburg, and in some cases, a salary supplement.
ITK is a young (1988) institute employing some 40 researchers in the
fields mentioned above. It already entertains many international
contacts. ITK is situated on the Tilburg University campus in a wooded
area at the edge of town with excellent connections by road, train and
air. Visiting researchers will find at ITK a fertile, dynamic,
project-oriented environment that allows them to develop their ideas
individually or in small groups of like-minded researchers. Naturally,
they have access to our latest computer, communication and publishing
technology during their stay and to the university's high-tech
