It's time for the Israeli CL/NLP community to meet in Israel. Thus, the next Israeli Seminar on Computational Linguistics (ISCOL 2008) is underway. It will take place at Bar-Ilan University, on Thursday, September 11, 2008.

We want this year's meeting to be about getting to know our growing community. We are especially interested in presentations from Masters students, and new PhDs.

In addition to the typical "new results" type presentations, we plan to have an additional "introduction" session, which is intended for young and not so young researchers to introduce themselves to the community. This session will feature short (5-10 minutes) talks in which the presenter could talk about:

Overall, these talks should focus more on what one would like to do, rather than what one already did.

We hope such format will facilitate interest, discussions, collaborations and a sense of community.

We look forward to seeing you in Bar-Ilan.

Please fill the pre-registration form to let us know if you plan to attend (yes), if you want to give a "new result" presentation (ok), and/or an "introductory" presentation (yes), as well as any comments you may have, so we could plan accordingly.
