The Fourth International Workshop on Parsing Technologies IWPT'95,
taking place this year on September 20 through 23 in the Czech
Republic in the heart of Europe, will continue the tradition
established by IWPT'89 (Pittsburgh/Hidden Valley) and IWPT'93
(Tilburg/Durbuy) of taking place partly on the premises of a
university and partly in a secluded conference resort.

The first part of IWPT'95 will take place in Prague, the capital
of the Czech Republic, the "hundred towered" or "golden" city on
the Vltava river (Moldau). The site of the conference will be the
historical building of Charles University (founded in 1348 as the
oldest University North of the Alps and East of Paris) in the heart
of the Old Town. The second part of the conference will be located
in the most fashionable "fin de siecle" hotel in Karlovy Vary
(also known as Carlsbad), a pleasant Czech spa about 130 km to the
North of Prague, famous for its hot water springs, original crystal
glass and procelain, and a special herb liquer called Becherovka.


A standard package is offered including accommodation in
Prague in hotel Krystal, 30 minutes from the centre of the
Old Town (3 nights) and in Grandhotel Pupp in Karlovy Vary
(2 nights), breakfasts and lunches for 4 days, a dinner and
the conference banquet in Grandhotel Pupp in Karlovy Vary.
This arrangement costs USD 310 USD for single occupancy and
USD 230 for shared occupancy of hotel rooms.

We can also arrange for accommodation in Prague in a more
centrally located hotel, but the additional cost would be at
least 80-100 USD per night (for a single occupancy) -
Prague is a touristic centre and September is still high
season. Hotel Krystal is a quite resonable hotel and city
transportation is comfortable, clean and fast (the centre of
the city can be reached from the hotel by tram and subway).


Arrivals and departures: arrival date at Prague Tuesday,
September 20, 1995, conference programme in Prague September
21-22, departure for Karlovy Vary September 22 late
afternoon, conference programme in Karlovy Vary September
23-24, departure for Prague September 24 after lunch.
Departure from Prague Sunday September 25.

The Conference fee of USD 130 includes a copy of the proceedings
and bus transportation from Prague to Karlovy Vary and back.
