Welcome to the DGfS-CL/EXCITEMENT Fall School 2013!
The DGfS-CL/EXCITEMENT fall school will be held in Heidelberg on September 2-13, 2013.
The CL Fall School is a biennial event for Bachelor-level and Master-level students of computational linguistics or adjacent subjects (computer science, formal linguistics) who wish to broaden their knowledge of techniques and methods used in natural language processing, in particular of innovative and emerging fields in computational linguistics not traditionally taught in standard degree programmes. All lectures are given in English.
In 2013, the DGfS/CL fall school is co-organized by the European project EXCITEMENT (http://www.excitement-project.eu).
The following courses will be offered:
Course 1: Distributional Semantics
Lecturer: Alessandro Lenci (Pisa)
- Course 2: Intelligent CALL and Learner Corpora
Lecturers: Detmar Meurers (T├╝bingen) & Heike Zinsmeister (Stuttgart)
- Course 3: Textual Entailment
Lecturers: Sebastian Pado, Tae-Gil Noh, Britta Zeller (Heidelberg)
- Course 4: Linguistic Annotation
Lecturer: Ines Rehbein (Potsdam)
Tracks are non-concurrent (i.e. any number of tracks can be booked), with one lecture (90 minutes) in each track each weekday.
You can attend as many courses as you wish. The choice of the courses is on-site, i.e., you can visit all courses that seem interesting to you, and then decide which ones you want to follow through. It is not necessary to register for the courses in advance.
Courses can be taken for credit (4 ECTS credits per course). This requires the definition of a project in collaboration with the lecturer and autonomous completion of the project after the course.
New information will be posted on this page as it becomes available.
