About the Summer Schools

Lancaster University is pleased to offer two free training events that cover the techniques of computational analysis of language and geographical information systems (see the description of the individual schools below). The schools include both lectures and practical sessions that introduce the latest developments in the field and practical applications of cutting-edge analytical techniques. The summer schools are taught by leading experts in the field both from Lancaster University and other institutions.

The summer schools are intended primarily for postgraduate research students but applications from Masters-level students, postdoctoral researchers, senior researchers, and others will also be considered.
