I’m excited to be heading to Scotland for much of June under the Distinguished Visiting Fellowship program of the Scottish Informatics and Computer Science Alliance, visiting the Universities of Aberdeen, St. Andrews, and Edinburgh, and giving talks at each. If any locals are around and would like to meet, please let me know. Here’s my provisional itinerary (to be updated as details come in):

  • Aberdeen 2–4
  • St. Andrews 4–8
  • Edinburgh 8–11
    • 6/9 12:30pm – lecture: “What’s so great about compositionality?”, Institute for Language, Cognition and Computation, School of Informatics, University of Edinburgh
    • 6/10 10-11:30am – seminar: The Harvard open-access initiatives, University of Edinburgh Library
      Appleton Tower, University of Edinburgh
  • Aberdeen 11–19
    • three-part master class on synchronous grammars:
      • 6/11 11:00am – tutorial: Synchronous grammars introduced
      • 6/12 11:00am – seminar: What’s so great about compositionality?
