Summer School of Linguistics

Per-fide 2013

9-12 September 2013

«Corpus Linguistics and Natural Language Processing»

University of Minho - Braga


The University of Minho will host a four-day Summer School on Corpus Linguistics and Natural Language Processing. The Summer School aims at graduate students working on any aspect of the study of corpus-based research: e.g. analyses of spoken and parallel corpora, lexicography, terminology, processing of corpus databases as well as semantic, grammatical and statistical research based on corpora. Its goal is to bring together specialists in the field of corpus linguistics and NLP while providing an opportunity for junior researchers to present and discuss their work. In addition to students and researchers, the Summer School also targets undergraduate and non-academic audiences, e.g. translators, interpreters, lexicographers, terminologists and language engineers, who may benefit from the practical knowledge and skills that stand to be gained from the different workshops. The organization of the event is the responsibility of the Centre for Humanistic Studies (Centro de Estudos Humanísticos, CEHUM), Institute of Arts and Human Sciences, University of Minho. The official languages of the course are Portuguese and English.
