12th Conference of the European Chapter

of the Association for Computational Linguistics*


* March 30th to April 3rd 2009

Athens, Greece*

EACL 2009 is the major scientific event in Computational Linguistics and Human Language Technology research in 2009 in Europe. It covers a broad spectrum of disciplines working towards enabling intelligent systems to interact with humans using natural language, and towards enhancing human-human communication through services such as speech recognition, automatic translation, information retrieval, text summarization, and information extraction.

The conference is organised by the National Centre for Scientific Research (NCSR) "Demokritos" - Institute of Informatics & Telecommunications, with the support of the Athens University of Economics and Business - Department of Informatics and the Institute for Language and Speech Processing. It will take place at the Megaron Athens International Conference Center.

*Early registration deadline: 11:59pm GMT, 27th February 2009*
