 NEW POST-GRADUATE PROGRAMME IN COMPUTATIONAL
LINGUISTICS AND FORMAL GRAMMAR AT KING'S COLLEGE
 LONDON

The Department of Philosophy at King's College, University of
London is pleased to announce a new MSc in Computational
Linguistics and Formal Grammar. The programme is provisionally
scheduled to begin in September, 1999 (final approval of the
programme expected in March, 1999).

The MSc programme will have strong links to the Computer Science
Department at King's College, and it will offer courses in

 -formal syntax
 -formal semantics
 -computational approaches to pragmatics and discourse theory
 -logic programming for natural language processing
 -mathematical linguistics and formal properties of grammar
 -non-monotonic logic for natural language.

The programme is a one-year full time MSc course designed primarily
for students who have completed a BA/BSc in linguistics,
computer science, philosophy, logic, or mathematics, and who
wish to pursue the application of formal and computational
methods to the analysis of natural language. The MSc will also
serve as the taught year of an MPhil/Ph.D research degree in
formal grammar and computational linguistics.

Current faculty of the programme:

Professor Dov Gabbay (Computer Science Department)
logic, non-monotonic reasoning

Professor Ruth Kempson (Philosphy Department)
formal pragmatics, formal semantics, formal syntax

Professor Shalom Lappin (Philosophy Department)
