is now a major field in Computer science, with large scale applications,
which are still under intense research, such as question-answering,
machine translation, automatic summarization, etc. most of them
in a multilingual setting. Language processing technology requires
knowledge from a large variety of disciplines: applied linguistics,
computer science and artificial intelligence, ergonomics and the
science of interaction, psychology, etc.
The goal of this
summer school, in a short period of time, is to present the foundations
and the most recent advances of the different topics of interest
to any language processing practitioner, with in view the development
of well targeted applications. This summer school is more application
oriented than most western summer schools such as ESSLII, most notably.
