34th Colloquium of Linguistics
 
 
Tutorials
 
In a break with tradition, this year's conference program will be supplemented by a number of tutorials. Each tutorial comprises three hours and is intended to give a concise introduction to a specific field for an audience having a different focus of research. The tutorials take place during the first full day of the conference (Sept. 7, 1999). Therefore, the official opening is on the second day.

Please note that the tutorial on Natural Language Parsing has been given previously at COLING/ACL 98, the tutorial on Language Technology for the Internet has been given at KONVENS 98, and the tutorial on The Neurocognitive Basis of Language has been given at the 1997 meeting of the Linguistics Association of the United States and Canada, held in Toronto.

The fee for each 3-hour session is 20 DM which includes written documentation. Make sure that you register for the tutorials of your choice by checking the respective boxes in the registration form.
