CLConference 2014: the 3rd Conference on Computational Linguistics
Tehran, Iran, November 19-20, 2014
A string of coincidences including the 50th anniversary of the foundation of Sharif University of Technology, and simultaneously the 50th anniversary of the foundation of the first Linguistics Department in Iran, gave the conference organizers a greater incentive to commemorate these two historic events by conducting the 3rd conference on computational linguistics as a joint effort of Sharif University of Technology, and the Linguistics Society of Iran.
The following speakers are scheduled to deliver keynote talks:
Jerry R. Hobbs:
He is the Chief Scientist and research professor at the Information Sciences Institute, University of Southern California. He has served as general editor of the Ablex Series on Artificial Intelligence. He is a past president of the Association for Computational Linguistics, and is a Fellow of the American Association for Artificial Intelligence. In August 2013 he received the Association for Computational Linguistics Lifetime Achievement Award.
