Welcome to the IWCH'96 pages. The International Workshop on Computational Humor aimed at bringing together research results in the area of computational humor, with an emphasis on the computational interpretation and generation of verbal humor. IWCH'96 was number twelve in the Twente Workshop on Language Technology series (TWLT). Proceedings of the workshops can be ordered.

The workshop was a success. Here is the full list of participants to the workshop. There has been a lot of publicity about our symposium and workshop on 'Computational Humor'. Most of the articles and (radio-)interviews are in Dutch and moreover, not yet electronically available. There is an extensive article on Computational Humor by Christoph Drösser in Die Zeit. If your web browser allows playing audio-files it becomes possible to hear (very short) interviews with Kim Binsted and Marvin Minsky. Try it
