From Quirky Case to Representing Space: AnnieFest one year later...

AnnieFest was almost a year ago and I'm pleased to report that because Tracy H. King is such a powerhouse of organization all is well with the volume arising from it.

Listing here the talks, as PARC doesn't keep its pages going for very long...

5 October 2011
George E. Pake Auditorium, PARC, 3333 Coyote Hill Road, Palo Alto, California


This symposium is being held on the occasion of Annie Zaenen's retirement from PARC to honor her significant contributions to theoretical and computational linguistics over a long and distinguished career.
The symposium features speakers who have collaborated closely with Annie at different times and on different topics, representing the broad sweep of her theoretical and practical concerns. The talks and discussion will reflect on their collaborations with Annie and offer new perspectives on language issues of current interest.
