Update on NLP Training Program given Covid19.
With the Covid19 virus (Coronavirus) situation deteriorating we have taken the decision to postpone our upcoming NLP training program with Lancaster University. I apologise to all those who’ve registered and were looking forward to the event, but to go ahead with a public gathering in the current times felt imprudent and increasingly impractical. We are working with Lancaster University to find new dates for the program. Our intention is to rerun it in the Autumn of 2020, subject to conditions improving. Rest assured the INQUIRE Council is meeting electronically on a regular basis to plan our course of action. Please periodically consult our website for details of upcoming and rescheduled events. We’ll post new information there as well as informing you by email of any developments.
