Following the workshops held in conjunction to the International

days and can also feature demo sessions. Accepted workshops will receive 
one free registration to RANLP-2013 (full registration incl. tutorials, 
workshop, conference, reception, conference dinner).

VENUE

The workshops will take place at the AUGUSTA SPA Hotel, Hissar, the main
