         Subject: ISCOL 2008 is approaching

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:
* What he is interested in
* What she is working on
* His general research direction
* Open Problems she might have
* etc
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
(http://www.cs.bgu.ac.il/~yoavg/iscol08/prereg.html) 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.
