The GF Resource Grammar Library (RGL) implements the morphology (inflection) and basic syntax (phrase structure) of more than 30 languages: Afrikaans, Bulgarian, Catalan, Chinese, Danish, Dutch, English, Estonian, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hindi, Interlingua, Japanese, Italian, Latvian, Maltese, Mongolian, Nepali, Norwegian bokmål, Nynorsk, Persian, Polish, Punjabi, Romanian, Russian, Sindhi, Spanish, Swedish, Thai, and Urdu. These resources are freely available as open-source software.
We are constantly welcoming new languages, especially from new language families. Learn more at the RGL status page. The summer school is an excellent place to get started with a new language.
The following Google TechTalk gives an overview of the GF technology and its many applications:
You will find the GF book a very good companion to your studies (available also as an e-book). However, the book is not a requirement for successful participation in the summer school.
Please register via this form. If the attendance stays on the normal level, then there is no need to limit the number of registrations. It is beneficial, though, that people register early.
There is no registration or participation fee. However the participants need to support their own travel and stay, including accommodation and meals.
At the moment, there is no information about grants/stipends to participants. Such information will be published if stipends become available.

Over the weekend of August 19th and August 20th there is a chance to visit a very nice Finnish summer place, Toiska. Aarne Ranta is coordinating that. There is a major rap and hip hop festival (Blockfest) on Friday 18th and Saturday 19th in Tampere, so if that's not your cup of tea, then you might want to consider tourism elsewhere in Finland those days. Accommodation will be much more expensive over that weekend in Tampere. It is possible to stay the night in Toiska.
