Participation in the Seminar is free and open for all. However, in order for us to plan ahead, please fill in the registration form.
We invite presentations on recent work in all areas of computational linguistics, natural language processing and all closely related fields. We accept work underway, provided that it represents recent and original work of interest to our audience. Presentations of work pertaining to Hebrew or Arabic are especially encouraged.
This year, in addition to the lectures and poster sessions, there will be a special session on Improving Statistical Machine Translation through Text Classification, sponsored by the Israeli Ministry of Science and Technology.
Please submit extended abstracts (1-2 pages) using the EasyChair system.
The Seminar is supported by The Caesarea Edmond Benjamin de Rothschild Foundation Institute for Interdisciplinary Applications of Computer Science and by the Israeli Ministry of Science and Technology.
