A report on the Seminar on Computational linguistics held at Rand during 8 July through 30 August 1963. The staff taught elementary programming, linguistic theory, mathematical linguistics. The memorandum includes a detailed schedule, an analysis and evaluation of the seminar by the participants, and a list of all persons involved. The evaluation indicates that most participants, while atempting to obtain further education in this area, will meantime begin using computers in their own ressearch, and that many of them will also teach this subject--some in special courses, some in general linguistics courses, and others only to research students.
