Subject: Final Reminder: Summer School in Human Language Technologies (May 10 deadline) CALL FOR PARTICIPATION NAACL-Supported Two-Week Summer School in Human Language Technologies The North American Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics (NAACL) is offering an exciting summer school opportunity for a limited number of graduate and undergraduate students interested in the field of Human Language Technology. The summer school will be held at The Center for Language and Speech Processing (CLSP) at Johns Hopkins University in conjunction with the CLSP 2002 Summer Workshop on Language Engineering. Five to ten students will be selected to attend two weeks of lectures and hands-on laboratories that will include general introductions to the major areas of study within the field of Human Language Technology (e.g. Natural Language Processing, Automatic Speech Recognition, Machine Translation, Information Retrieval) as well as sessions on specialized research topics of current interest in the field. The summer school straddles The 40th Anniversary Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics (to be held at the University of Pennsylvania). The pair of events will jointly provide a unique two-week immersion in Human Language Technology research: Summer school (part 1): July 1-5 ACL conference: July 8-10 Summer school (part 2): July 11-12 To encourage summer school attendees to take advantage of both events, students will receive: Registration for the summer school (parts 1 and 2). Registration for the ACL conference. We also anticipate providing a limited number of SCHOLARSHIPS to cover additional costs (e.g. travel expenses to the workshop venue, accommodation during the summer school and ACL conference, travel between between the workshop venue and the ACL conference) as funding permits. Preference for funding will be given to students attending North American institutions. APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS are available at http://www.naacl.org/, which also has information on applying for SCHOLARSHIP funds. Preference will be given to students attending North American institutions. The application deadline is May 10, 2002.
