International workshop on Sanskrit Computational Linguistics

A four-day international workshop will be organised on Sanskrit Computational Linguistics – linking Sanskrit grammar and texts with modern Science and Technology hosting scholars from across continents from January 2-5, 2017 at DPRC. This workshop is part of the research project Grammatical Analysis and XML Tagging of Mahabharata.

This workshop intends for computer scientists, especially interested in the computer treatment of natural language, as well as traditional Sanskrit scholars, well versed in Vyākaraṇa, and eager to learn essentials of new technologies that may help them contribute in relevant ways to Sanskrit studies and computational linguistics. This attempts to bridge the gap of computer literacy and poor awareness about the relevance of ancient Indian linguistic theories through the scientific inquiry into natural language understanding and processing. The workshop is open to all faculty members, researchers and students of Sanskrit, Language Science and Computer Science disciplines.
