Special Interest Group on Computational Linguistics
General information about the Special Interest Group on Computational Linguistics of the DGfS
The Special Interest Group (SIG) on Computational Linguistics is part of the German Linguistic Society (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Sprachwissenschaft, DGfS). The goal of the SIG is to promote the communication between computational and theoretical linguistics.
The DGfS-CL was founded in 1988. From that year until 1999, the DGfS-CL organised a series of seven symposia. The symposia were then replaced by the Fall Schools.
Speakers of the Special Interest Group have been:
- Manfred Pinkal (Saarbrücken), 1988-1990
- Michael Herweg (IBM), 1990-1995
- Tibor Kiss (Bochum), 1995-1999
- Miriam Butt (Konstanz), 1999-2008
- Sabine Schulte im Walde (Stuttgart), 2008-2011
- Stefanie Dipper (Bochum), 2011-2016
- Rainer Osswald (Düsseldorf), since 2016
A number of activities are organised by the DGfS-CL on a regular basis:
- biennial fall schools
- poster sessions as part of the annual conferences of the DGfS
- tutorials as part of the annual conferences of the DGfS
- the Conference on Natural Language Processing (KONVENS)
- events and material on teaching computational linguistics
