Message 2: DIALOGUE'96, The Schedule

Date: Sat, 06 Apr 1996 07:21:47 +0400
From: Serge Sharoff <>
Subject: DIALOGUE'96, The Schedule

 International Conference on computational linguistics and its

DIALOGUE'96, an international workshop on computational linguistics
and its applications, will take place May 4-9, 1996 in the scientific
park Puschino (100 km from Moscow). The conference title means that it
is a meeting place for a dialogue 
a) between researchers from different fields that are related to
 computational linguistics (linguists, computer scientists, cognitive
 scientists, psychologists);
b) between researchers from the former USSR and from the international
 community in computational linguistics.

Puschino is a scientific park that has been developed in the 70s for
the biology-oriented research. The town is located in the picturesque
place on the bank of Oka river (a tributary of Volga) and is
surrounded by forests. Conference will take place in the Institute of
Proteins. All attendees will live in the hotel "Puschino". The
registration fee for the conference is 150,000 Russian rubles (about
$30). One place in a double room at the hotel costs 75,000 Russian
rubles ($15), single occupation of the double room costs 136,000
($27). These prices are tentative due to inflation in Russia, however,
their dollar equivalent will remain relatively stable. All fees will
be paid on site.

The registration will be held at the Russian Institute of Artificial
Intelligence located in Moscow at Chernyakhovsky St., 9, room 331
during May 4 from 9.30 a.m. till 11.30 a.m. Late participants will be
registered during the conference in Puschino.

Daily expense on food in Puschino is approximately $15 - 30. We
suggest you to exchange the relevant amount of rubles and cash your
credit cards in Moscow before you travel to Puschino.

You may reach Puschino by bus (bus station at metro Yugo-Zapadnaya,
bus no. 359 leaving to Puschino, it'll take you there in 2 hours). We
are going to organize a bus transfer from the Russian Institute of
Artificial Intelligence after the registration ( departure 11.30 a.m.,
May 4).
