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.
