Working Papers AIMS

- Arbeitspapiere des Instituts für Maschinelle Sprachverarbeitung -
 
In January 1994 we initiated a series of working papers: AIMS. AIMS stands for 'Arbeitpapiere des Instituts für Maschinelle Sprachverarbeitung' (Working Papers of the Department of Natural Language Processing), at University of Stuttgart. So far every issue of AIMS is centered around a specific topic, either by presenting individual dissertations or by compiling articles and master theses on this topic written by members of the IMS and associates. The work has pre-publication status and might appear in other form elsewhere. We invite other departments and sites to exchange their reports with us. Otherwise our working papers are also available at the cost of 20 EUR per issue plus costs for shipping and handling. To obtain the working papers, contact:
