We'd appreciate your limiting conference announcements to 150 lines, so that we can post more than 1 per issue. Please consider omitting information useful only to attendees, such as information on housing, transportation, or rooms and times of sessions. Please do not use abbreviations or acronyms for your conference unless you explain them in your text. Many people outside your area of specialization will not recognize them.

Subject: COLING-96 Program

 The 16th International Conference
 on Computational Linguistics
 Monday August 5 - Friday August 9 1996
 Copenhagen, Denmark
 2nd Circular and Registration Handbook
 Under the Patronage of
 Her Royal Highness Princess Alexandra of Denmark
COLING is held every other year under the auspices of the
International Committee on Computational Linguistics - ICCL. This
year, the 16th COLING will take place in Copenhagen, Denmark, under
the Patronage of Her Royal Highness Princess Alexandra of Denmark.
COLING consistently offers excellent possibilities for presenting,
listening to, and discussing the latest developments, within
theoretical as well as practical computational linguistics. This year
the programme covers a wide variety of themes, just to mention a few:
evergreens such as morphology, syntax, semantics and parsing, as well
as sessions on resources and corpus-based methods, speech and
language, and NLP in Multimedia. During COLING, poster sessions,
demonstrations and book exhibition take place, and the PRE-COLING
programme includes tutorials and workshops.
Copenhagen is Cultural City in 1996, so apart from participating in
the conference, you may take advantage of the numerous cultural
We look forward to receiving you here in Copenhagen,
