Special Interest Group on CL
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), 2016-2023
- Annette Hautli-Janisz (Passau), seit 2023
A number of activities are organised by the DGfS-CL on a regular basis:
- biennial fall schools

- tutorials as part of the annual conferences of the DGfS
- KONVENS (Konferenz zur Verarbeitung natürlicher Sprache/Conference on Natural Language Processing)
