About the Fall School
The Computational Linguistics Fall School was established by the German Linguistics Association as a biennial event for students who wish to broaden their knowledge of techniques and methods used in natural language processing. The motivation is to give interested students an understanding of innovative and emerging fields in computational linguistics, including fields not traditionally taught in standard degree programs. All lectures will be in English. In 2009 the Fall School will be held at the University of Konstanz, Germany.
Courses will run for two weeks in order to ensure that students can receive credit for the courses at their home university under the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS).
Each course is worth 9 credits (MA level). A certificate of attendance will be issued by the Department of Linguistics at Konstanz.
Language: Talks will be in English. Courses will be held in English; the language of the fall school will be English and German.
You don't need to be a member of the DGfS to attend!
