----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Call for Participation

NAACL HLT Young Investigators Workshop on Computational Approaches to Languages of the Americas http://groups.google.com/group/naacl-2010-yi-workshop

Workshop date: Sunday, June 6, 2010 Location: Millenium Biltmore Hotel, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Early registration through May 9, 2010 Late registration through May 23, 2010 http://aclweb.org/membership/naaclhlt2010reg.php -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This workshop brings together researchers in Natural Language Processing and Computational Linguistics from across the Americas. There will be oral and poster presentations by researchers from a diverse range of countries, including Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, Uruguay, Mexico, and Costa Rica.

The goal of this workshop is to promote discussion and collaboration throughout the Americas, so each presentation will specifically address opportunities for collaboration in addition to covering their technical material. In addition there will be a panel discussion at the end of the day designed to stimulate ideas and interaction.

If you are interested in increasing the scope of your collaborations, or you are curious about research from all parts of the Americas, please plan to join us for what we are sure will be a very interesting and productive day.


Ted Pedersen and Thamar Solorio co-organizers ------------------------------------------------------------------------
