the University of Oslo invites applications to its interdisciplinary MSc study programme in Informatics: Language and Communication. The application deadline for admissions is April 15, 2012. Teaching will start in mid-August 2012.
Informatics: Language and Communication at Oslo is a programme at the interface of Computer Science and Computational Linguistics, hosted at the Department of Informatics.
