This is the web page of CoBaLiSE: an organization for people interested in Constraint Based Linguistics, in the South East of England.
It used to be called SECBaLC: the South Eastern Constraint Based Linguistic Circle (pronounced almost like `sick bag', but no-one liked the name).
So far there have been six meetings (see below), held a irregular intervals.
The next meeting will be on fairly soon, hopefully. Tuesday, December 1. at Essex, organized by Doug Arnold doug#essex.ac.uk, and Bob Borsley rborsley#essex.ac.uk. Guest speakers will include Bob Levine.
If you would like to present a paper, or get more information about a meeting, you should contact one of the organizers of the meeting.
