Meeting Description:

The Computational Linguistics and Language Technologies Group of the Departments
of Linguistics and Computer Science and Engineering at The Ohio State University
are pleased to sponsor the second meeting of the Midwest Computational
Linguistics Colloquium (MCLC). This colloquium offers a less formal forum for
computational linguistics researchers to get together and present ideas and
work. It is intended to be primarily for researchers from the Midwest region,
but applications from all regions are welcome. The first meeting of MCLC was
successfully held at University of Indiana Bloomington in 2004, and with this
second installment it is on its way to becoming an annual event.
