CLAN

The CLAN (Computational Linguistics at Aberdeen) resesarch group meets at 4PM every Wednesday.  Every week we discuss a research paper, idea, proposal, etc.  CLAN meetings are open to everyone, contact me for more information or to be put on the mailing list.

I try to tweet CLAN information on @EhudReiter. Feel free to subscribe, most of my tweets are relevant to NLG research. Similarly my blog (ehudreiter.com) is mostly about NLG research.
