TaCoS - Call for Participation

27.02.2024 | Hans Beelen

The Tagung der Computerlinguistik-Studierenden (TaCoS) was first organized in 1992 and takes place once every year. It offers students of computational linguistics and adjacent fields a chance to exchange views during talks and workshops. The conference is hosted by teams of student volunteers at their university. Participants traditionally receive accommodation and breakfast in exchange for a small fee. At the center of the conference stand talks, workshops, and poster sessions; each given by students for students. Established academics from the host university are invited as keynote speakers as well. In addition, there is a social program for everyone to connect and network. 
This year marks the 33. TaCoS and our team at Saarland University in Saarbrücken is proud to host the event this spring! The talks are set to be held on campus from 16th to 18th of May 2024.

The call for participation is now open!
It closes on March 24th.


We welcome abstracts for presentations (20 minutes) and workshops (1 hour), on broadly the following main topics:

  • Computational Linguistics
  • Natural Language Processing (NLP)
  • Digital Humanities with a linguistics component
  • Computer Science

All work that you find interesting or are proud of can be submitted! Your bachelors or masters thesis, a term-paper, work done as a student assistent or simply a hobby project.
