Dates: 09-Sep-2013 - 12-Sep-2013

Focus: This summer school will focus on the construction of parallel corpora (written and spoken), morphosyntactic and prosodic annotation, text mining and data analysis tools.
Minimum Education Level: Undergraduate

The University of Minho will host a four-day summer school on corpus linguistics and natural language processing. The summer school aims at both undergraduate and graduate students working on any aspect of the study of corpus-based research: e.g. analyses of spoken and parallel corpora, lexicography, terminology, processing of corpus databases as well as semantic, grammatical and statistical research based on corpora. Its goal is to bring together specialists in the field of corpus linguistics and NLP while providing an opportunity for junior researchers to present and discuss their work. In addition to students and researchers, the summer school also targets non-academic audiences, e.g. translators, interpreters, lexicographers, terminologists and language engineers, who may benefit from the practical knowledge and skills that stand to be gained from the different workshop sessions. The organisation of the event is the responsibility of the Centre for Humanistic Studies of the Institute of Arts and Human Sciences, University of Minho. The official languages of the course are Portuguese and English.
