This summer (or rather) spring school will be the third in a series. The overall aim is to boost the area of Natural Language Engineering (NLE) for under-resourced South Asian languages. The subject area falls within the scope of computer science, linguistics, computational linguistics and education and is very strongly application oriented. The intention is to provide access to international experts in the field who can communicate advanced knowledge about linguistics and state of the art practices in NLE to interested graduate students and researchers in South Asia, particularly in those countries where NLE and the development of language technologies is still in the early stages, but at least not completely absent in the academic institutions or the industrial efforts of the country.
