Message 2: First Israeli Seminar on Computational Linguistics

Date: Sun, 22 Jan 1995 19:23:44 First Israeli Seminar on Computational Linguistics
From: Shuly Wintner <shulyCS.Technion.Ac.IL>
Subject: First Israeli Seminar on Computational Linguistics

 Call for Participation

 First Israeli Seminar on Computational Linguistics
 Laboratory of Computational Linguistics
 Department of Computer Science
 Technion, Haifa
 February 16, 1995

The Seminar is intended to bring together researchers and
practitioners in all areas of Computational Linguistics (or Natural
Language Processing), and also in related areas such as Formal
Linguistics, Theoretical Linguistics, Cognitive Science etc. Its main
objective is exposition of the kind of work that is carried out in both
academia and industry in Israel in those fields. It is hoped that as
a result from such a gathering, more cooperation among different sites
will emerge; resources will be shared; and the entire field will
become more prominent. The Seminar will also serve as a means to
introduce the area to graduate students who are attracted to it but
are unaware of the possibilities of majoring in it.

In this first Seminar the format of future meetings will be
defined. Hopefully, it will be the first in a series of periodic
gatherings. Some speakers will survey various ongoing activities in
Israel; some projects will be described in more details. The
possibility of creating a more formal organization will be discussed.
