This volume contains a selection of the papers presented at the fifteenth
installment of Computational Linguistics in the Netherlands, held at Leiden
University on Friday, December 17th, 2004. Organized by the computational
linguists of what was at that time called the Leiden Centre for Linguistics
(ULCL), this one day conference attracted 74 abstracts from no less than
four continents, and over one hundred participants.
The 16 papers in this volume present a state of the art overview of
research in different subfields of the broad field of Computational
Linguistics, including (computational) phonology, prosody, syntax,
semantics, phraseology, machine learning, and text analysis.
