DFKI-LT - Dissertation Series

Saarbrücken Dissertations in Computational Linguistics and Language Technology is a series in which outstanding doctoral dissertations are published, which have been submitted at the Computational Linguistics and Phonetics Department of the Saarland University or which have been developed in the context of the Language Technology Lab at the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI).

All theses can be ordered using the online order form.

Due to some minor errors on the cover of the volumes 1-5 we are able to offer these volumes with a substantial reduction.
