Postersession CL – Call for Papers

Postersession Computerlinguistik der 39. Jahrestagung der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Sprachwissenschaft

Preliminary call for abstracts

The SIG CL of the DGfS would like to invite abstract submissions for the computational linguistics poster session of the 39th meeting of the German Society for Linguistics (DGfS) conference in Saarbrücken. Represented at this conference are numerous subfields of linguistics, so this is a venue when you can share your work with colleagues both in and out of the computational linguistics field. We invite international submissions from all areas of computational linguistics and natural language processing, ranging from machine translation and information retrieval to speech and dialogue systems and cognitive modeling. Both posters and demos are welcome. Submissions can be in German or English.
