Hugo Brandt Corstius was the first to write a PhD on computational linguistics in the Low Countries. This was as early as 1970. Now, 50 years later, the field of computational linguistics has grown tremendously and computational linguistics is an active research area in Belgium and The Netherlands.
The publications that founded and defined this research field, dating from the sixties, seventies, and eighties, are often not digitized and difficult to access for research purposes. In this archive, we try to make (some of) the early publications available in digital form (digital PDF and OCR).
The documents we currently have are only a small sample of what could be available. Our goal is to collect and present a complete overview of computational linguistics research in the Low Countries in the sixties, seventies, and eighties. If you have relevant material that you can donate, please contact us.
From 2019, we also make available the digitized versions of the CLIN proceedings before we switched to CLIN Journal (see the proceedings menu item). Contact us for any corrections or additions.
The archive is maintained by Walter Daelemans, and was created with help from Ben Verhoeven, Frederik Vaassen, Tom De Smedt, Guy De Pauw, Sarah Schrauwen, and Jens Lemmens.
