Papers and participants

Many of the papers presented at the meeting were eventually published in two collections: a thematic issue (vol 2 number 4, 1996) of Natural Language Engineering and in András Kornai (ed): Extended Finite State Models of Language Cambridge University Press (1999). These are marked by NLE and EFSML in the list below. Readers should consult these volumes, because the versions presented here are, for the most part, superseded by the NLE and/or EFSML versions.
