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.
