COLT kick-off workshop

COLT kick-off workshop



We are very happy to invite you to the COLT kick-off workshop. The goal of the workshop is to present the Computational Linguistics and Linguistic Theory group to local researchers, so as to identify common research interests and potential collaborations. Our interests span from empirical approaches to Linguistics and Cognitive Science to general Artificial Intelligence, with a current emphasis on deep learning techniques.

The workshop will take place on February 8th (10h - 13h, followed by lunch), at Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Campus del Poblenou (Auditorium).

The event will include a keynote talk by Marco Baroni and talks from the other members of the research group. You can find the tentative schedule and list of speakers below.

Registration is free -- please register so we can manage the logistics (use the form below).
