SUMMER SCHOOL INFORMATION:

 For further information please contact:
 Nicolas Nicolov <nicolasedinburgh.aisb.ac.uk> or
 Prof. Ruslan Mitkov <ruslaniai.uni-sb.de>


ACCOMMODATION:

The summer school will take place in Hotel "Orpheus", Tzigov Chark,
which accomodates up to 50 participants. We have chosen a small and
cosy conference hotel to create a better and friendlier working and
social environment: however this implies restrictions on the
availability of single rooms and participants will be normally offered
to share 2-bed rooms. Those interested in attending the summer school
are encouraged to register as early as possible.


LOCATION AND TRANSPORTATION:

Tzigov Chark is situated on the shore of the beautiful Batak Lake in
the Western Rhodope mountains and is 150km from Sofia, the capital
of Bulgaria. The local organisers will provide a daily shuttle bus/
conference taxi from Sofia airport to the summer school location
at an inexpensive rate. Sofia is easily accessible by plane from most
major European cities (e.g. daily flights or several flights per week
from London, Frankfurt, Paris, Zurich, Vienna and other European
cities). There are also direct flights to Sofia from North America
(New York, Toronto) and Asia (Singapore, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur).
In order to enable the local organisers to plan the shuttle service
efficiently, please contact Victoria Arranz <victoriaccl.umist.ac.uk>
with details about your journey (arrival/departure time and date) at
least 2 weeks before you leave for the summer school.

RELATED EVENTS:

The summer school participants are also invited to take part in the
Int. Conference "RECENT ADVANCES IN NATURAL LANGUAGE PROCESSING",
which will take place immediately after the summer school in the
same hotel. Further information about the conference can be
obtained from: Prof. R. Mitkov <ruslaniai.uni-sb.de> or
Nicolas Nicolov <nicolasaisb.edinburgh.ac.uk> or you can have a
