Linguistic Institute 2011

« previous post | next post »

Every other year, the Linguistic Society of America has a sort of combination summer school, conference, and party known as a "Linguistic Institute". The 2011 edition will take place July 7-August 2 on the campus of the University of Colorado at Boulder, and there's still time to register.

The Boulder Institute features more than 120 terrific visiting faculty from all over the world,

I've been to three of these frolics, and they were among the most enlightening and enjoyable experiences of my professional life. Martha Palmer, who's running the show this time, sent a notice featuring one aspect of this year's institute:

The University of Colorado is offering a fantastic opportunity for people interested in Computational Linguistics to be brought up to date with the latest developments and trends in 4 short weeks.

This is part of the Linguistic Institute 2011 in Boulder, which offers an unusually wide range of Computational Linguistics courses by renowned researchers, covering everything from Computational Extraction of Social and Interactional Meaning from Speech to Mathematical Models of Language Change.

There are also some very good Human Language technology workshops that are open to Institute participants.

It’s an extraordinary networking opportunity, with small classes and lots of institute-wide events.
