3rd ELSNET Summer School 1995
Edinburgh University organized a Summer School on the topic of Multilinguality in Speech and Language Processing. In Europe, multilingualism is a recurrent theme in every aspect of speech and language research. Speech and language processing technologies, often developed on the basis of English, may prove to need extension or modification when moved to languages whose characteristics may differ. Spoken or written language translation combines many aspects of component technologies and defines its own research area of translation metholodologies. Computer-aided language learning and assessment likewise is an area where many interests meet. Multilingual resources - grammars, language and speech corpora, lexicons and termbanks - are needed for all of these applications.
2nd ELSNET Summer School 1994
Corpus-based Methods in Language and Speech Processing was the title organized by the Linguistics department of Utrecht University.  A collection of contributions from lecturers was published in the book Corpus-based Methods in Language and Speech Processing.
1st ELSNET Summer School 1993
The very first European Summer School was organized by the Department of Phonetics and Linguistics at University College London. ELSNET and the Socrates ICP "Phonetics and Speech Communication" were supporting. The topic was Prosody.
