What's New

Natural Language Processing Reading Group

SALTS is organizing a reading group in the area of natural language processing (NLP). The goal is to read, analyze and critique selected articles in specific areas of NLP, attend NLP-related talks and in general be part of building an NLP research hub at Rutgers. All faculty, researchers and PhD students interested in NLP and its applications are invited. If you are interested, please feel free to join us!

Please check the NLP Reading Group page for Spring 2013 schedule, and our past activities. Meetings will take place every other Wednesday 12:30-1:30pm, starting from February 6, in the Huntington House Conference Room (184 COLLEGE AVENUE, New Brunswick, NJ, 08901-1163), unless otherwise announce. This semester we encourage students to present their ideas/preliminary work/completed work.
