 ELSNET's 5TH EUROPEAN SUMMER SCHOOL ON LANGUAGE AND SPEECH COMMUNICATION
 ************************************************************************


	 LEXICON DEVELOPMENT FOR LANGUAGE AND SPEECH PROCESSING


	 Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium
 Centre for Computational Linguistics
 14-25 July 1997

	 	 FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT
 ******************

The Centre for Computational Linguistics announces the fifth European
Summer School on Language and Speech Processing. The central theme of
the summer school will be 'Lexicon Development for Language and Speech
Processing'. The event is sponsored by ELSNET and Erasmus, and
supported by ESCA and EACL.

Language and speech processing applications with a reasonable coverage
need large lexicons. The construction and maintenance of lexical
resources is a costly and complex task. Consequently, decisions about
notation, format, structure, content and acquisition of lexical
knowledge require careful consideration, while keeping in mind
specific requirements of applications on the one hand and reusability
on the other. For students and staff interested in the development of
systems for speech and language communication it is of prime
importance to be familiar with the latest developments in this field.

Participants will be fully informed about the current state of the art
during two weeks of plenaries, parallel courses and practical
workshops in the pleasant atmosphere of the historical city of Leuven,
Belgium.

 From December 1996 onwards the final programme will be
available. Keep checking our WWW-pages
(http://www.ccl.kuleuven.ac.be/ess97/ess97.html, also available
via ELSNET's Home Page at
http://www.cogsci.ed.ac.uk/elsnet/home.html). All necessary
information will be available there!

The deadline for registration will be May 1st, 1997.
