Short Intensive Courses
TWC made its name by offering short, high-level courses and similar events for language researchers and workers in the language industries. We are very pleased to announce that this year we are again able to offer events in the beautiful ex-Cistercian monastery at Pontignano, near Siena: see http://www.unisi.it/servizi/certosa/ We are organising this event jointly with the University of Siena.
