The Sixth Midwest Computational Linguistics Colloquium (MCLC-09)
MCLC offers a less formal forum for computational linguistics researchers to get together and present ideas and research results. It is intended to be primarily for researchers from the Midwest region, but applications from all regions are welcome. We particularly welcome work in progress from graduate students and other young researchers. The first meeting of MCLC was successfully held at Indiana University, Bloomington in 2004, and we're pleased to bring it back to Indiana.
