Have you noticed that lodging in the Potsdam/Berlin area around this time of year can be rather pricey? Well, a bunch of our attendees have, and so, because of popular demand, we decided that, while we cannot provide comprehensive sleeping arrangements, we can at least help facilitate such arrangements among students. So if you are looking for a couch to stay on, consult our couch surfing bazaar. If you are a student of the University of Potsdam, please consider helping out by offering a bed to sleep in. Or a couch. Or a friendly piece of cardboard. It’s appreciated!
With May just around the corner, the Early Bird phase for registration is coming to a close, and, with it, the 5€ attendance fee discount. We were very happy to see that there were, indeed, many early birds among the flock of our attendants. Starting tomorrow, registrations will proceed with the usual fee of 20€.
Don’t worry, though! You may still avoid payment entirely by giving a presentation.
We are delighted to announce that the 28th “Tagung der Computerlinguistik Studierenden” (Meetup of Computational Linguistics Students) will be held at the University of Potsdam. As was decided last year in Stuttgart, the TaCoS thereby returns to Potsdam after its long and sunny stay in the south. Proceedings will be from June 8th to June 10th. For more information, please refer to our scheduling and location pages – but before you do so, don’t forget to register to attend the TaCoS.
Oh, and while you’re already perusing the wide variety of attractions in Potsdam and Berlin, consider committing to a presentation. If you act fast, slots might still be available!
