DGfS-CL Fall School 2011, August 29th to September 9th, Zurich

The Computational Linguistics Fall School gives interested students the opportunity to acquire knowledge in methods of natural language processing. The CL Fall School was established by the German Linguistics Association as a biennial event for students who wish to attend courses not traditionally taught in standard degree programs. The motivation is to give an understanding of innovative and emerging fields in computational linguistics. In 2011 the Fall School is carried out by the Institute of Computational Linguistics at the University of Zurich, Switzerland, from August 29th to September 9th. All lectures will be held in English.
