Joint Conference of

the 47th Annual Meeting of the Association for

Computational Linguistics


the 4th International Joint Conference on Natural

Language Processing


the Asian Federation of Natural Language



2 - 7 August, 2009


For the first time, the flagship conferences of the Association of Computational Linguistics (ACL) and Asian Federation of Natural Language Processing (AFNLP) -- the ACL and IJCNLP -- are jointly organized as a single event. The ACL-IJCNLP 2009 will cover a broad spectrum of technical areas related to natural language and computation. ACL-IJCNLP 2009 will include a rich array of the state of the art: 120 full and 95 short paper presentations, 11 demonstrations, 6 tutorials, and 12 workshops. We welcome you to participate in the conference to discuss the latest research findings. The 2009 Conference on Empirical Methods in Natural Language Processing (EMNLP) will also be co-located with ACL-IJCNLP 2009 right here in Singapore, which will also feature over 160 papers.

Singapore, the culturally and technologically vibrant Garden City of Asia, is the stage set for the landmark joint conference. The conference will take place at Suntec Singapore International Convention & Exhibition Centre, which is only 20 minutes from Changi International Airport. Suntec Singapore offers direct access to 5,200 hotel rooms, 1,000 shops, 300 restaurants and a world-class performing arts centre.
