DGfS-CL Fall School 2017

11 – 22 September

The Computational Linguistics Fall School was established in 2001 by the Special Interest Group on Computational Linguistics of the German Linguistic Society (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Sprachwissenschaft, DGfS) 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.

The 9th Fall School will take place from September 11 to September 22, 2017, at Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf, Germany. The Fall School offers four courses, each of which consists of ten 90-minutes lectures. The courses can be attended selectively or together. All courses are taught in English. Students can receive credits for the courses at their home university under the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS).
