This volume provides a selection of the papers which were presented at the eleventh conference on Computational Linguistics in the Netherlands (Tilburg, 2000).
It gives an accurate and up-to-date picture of the lively scene of computational linguistics in the Netherlands and Flanders.
The volume covers the whole range from theoretical to applied research and development, and is hence of interest to both academia and industry.
The target audience consists of students and scholars of computational linguistics, and speech and language processing (Linguistics, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering).
”contains a good snapshot of natural language processing and computational linguistics in Europe at the beginning of the decade”… All in all, the book makes for an interesting reading, covering a variety of topics.” in:
