Clippers: a computational linguistics discussion group (White 795.04 Winter 2007)

Clippers is our forum for informal discussion of all issues related to computational linguistics: from work in progress of visitors and people in the department, over presentation of new papers, to practical concerns such as hints on the use of CL related software tools.

Everyone with an interest in computational linguistics is most welcome!

To see what happened in previous quarters of Clippers, you can check out the pages of some previous quarters via the links on the course catalog page.

When and where: Fridays at 130- 248 in Hagerty Hall 351.

Important: Please be sure to subscribe to our local computational linguistics mailing list on which all Clippers sessions and talks are announced.

The plan, as usual, is to start each session with 5-10 minutes on whatever someone wants to bring up and then to continue with the following topics:
