ACL 2015 will be held on the China National Convention Center <http://www.cnccchina.com/en/default.aspx> (CNCC), Beijing, China.

After the Olympic Games, CNCC took some renovations and opened officially in Nov.2009. Now CNCC is ready for congresses, international meetings, exhibitions and other various events, with the world-class services and unparalleled facilities provided.

Sitting in the center of the Olympic commercial circle between Beijing's fourth and fifth ring roads, CNCC boasts an enviable location. It's only 30 minutes’ drive to the airport and the subway station is connected with CNCC's basement which enables people to quickly go to the city center, the airport, the Beijing Railway station, the central business district, China's silicon valley Zhongguancun, and many tourist attractions such as Tian'anmen Square, Forbidden City or Summer Palace. It takes only one hour from CNCC to the renowned Great Wall and Ming Tombs.
