Israeli Seminar on Computational Linguistics
Computational linguistics and natural language processing are active
research fields in Israel today, as well as popular areas of activity
in industry. The Israeli Seminar on Computational Linguistics is a
venue for exchanging ideas, reporting on work in progress as well as
established results, forming extramural cooperations and advancing the
collaboration between academia and industry. This is a continuation of
the tradition that started in 1995 with a meeting at the Technion and
ended after four successful meetings in 1996.
The program is available for download in PostScript or PDF format.
