Dear TextLink members!

This is a reminder that the deadline (November 1st) for submitting the application for participation at the Second TextLink training school in Prague is getting close. If you plan to attend the school and have not yet sent the application form, please do it soon (i.e. before the deadline).

You should get a letter that we have received your application form in a couple of days after you sent it to us. As I was attending the TextLink meeting in Lisbon for a few past days, I may be a little behind with sending these letters. If you will not get it in a couple of days, it may mean that it got lost somehow somewhere. In that case please resend the application form.

Looking forward to seeing you all in Prague!



Computational methods and statistics

Second TextLink Training School

Prague, Czech Republic
February 6th to 10th, 2017



The Second Training School of TextLink (COST Action IS1312) will
take place in Prague, Czech Republic, from February 6th to 10th, 2017.
It is hosted by the Institute of Formal and Applied Linguistics
of the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Charles University.

It is a follow-up of the First Training School of TextLink,
which took place in January this year in Valencia (see
http://textlink.ii.metu.edu.tr/node/749), and is going to be the
last training school of TextLink.

The programme of the Second Training School has been prepared
in such a way that both the attendants of the first school and
also newly interested trainees are welcome. The school aims
primarily at Ph.D. students but is also open to postdoctoral
researchers, masters degree students, and others.

The school will focus on the following topics: discourse annotation
theories and their comparison, annotation issues (such as annotation
consistency), statistically sound research methods, multilingual
discourse annotation, and CCR (Cognitive approach to Coherence
Relations) and transformations to/from other approaches. Emphasis
will be put on practical lab sessions.

Places are limited (40 trainees). Priority will be given
to Ph.D. students and young researchers of the institutions
participating in TextLink.
