1. NODALIDA 2007 in Tartu, Estonia
 
=========================================================
 
 
 
NODALIDA 2007, the 16th Nordic Conference of
 
Computational Linguistics, will take place 24-26 May 2007
 
in Tartu, Estonia.
 
 
 
Tartu is a little town in the southern part of
 
Estonia. The oldest in Estonia (established 1030), second
 
by the number of inhabitants (100 000) and widely known
 
by the University of Tartu (established 1632).
 
 
 
The conference will be held in the heart of the city at
 
the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science of the University
 
of Tartu and the University Library.
 
 
 
Tartu is accessible from Tallinn by coach. The coaches
 
run very frequently (1-2 departures per hour) and the
 
ride takes 2.5 hrs.
 
 
 
There are direct flights to Tallinn from many European capital cities.
