I am in charge of the Computational Linguistics reading group at The Graduate Center. We meet on Fridays from 2:30pm-3:30pm in the Linguistics Thesis room (in room 7400). Anyone interested in topics in computational linguistics is welcome! To get on our mailing list, please email me at rrakov<at>gc<dot>cuny<dot>edu.
