Comparative Computational Semantics
In collaboration with the Stanford University and the University of Washington, the WeSearch project at the University of Oslo holds a three-day, by-invitation working meeting from November 13 to 15, 2014, in Berlin. The meeting will be hosted at Arcotel Velvet, not far away from Bahnhof Friedrichstraße, which is easily accessible from both airports.
The project has available funds by the Norwegian Research council to cover (the bulk of) expenses related to participation in the meeting, viz.
- travel costs, up to EUR 300 or EUR 800 for European or US participants, respectively;
- up to four overnight stays at the conference hotel (not including breakfast);
- lunches during the three days of the working meeting (Thursday to Saturday);
- a joint dinner for all participants, on Friday evening (November 14).
Participants are asked to make their own travel arrangements and email their arrival and departure times to StephanOepen. Please keep receipts and (if applicable) boarding passes, which you will have to submit for reimbursement to the University of Oslo after completion of your travels. With a bit of luck, reimbursements should be processed by mid-December.
We plan on starting the meeting at 10:00 (‘after breakfast’) on Thursday, November 13, and wrap up around 16:00 on Saturday, November 15.
