Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics

Meeting Description:

The Workshop on Computational Linguistics and Writing (CL&W 2012) aims to provide an overview of current developments in the area of computational linguistics for authoring aids, and an overview of recent advances in writing research. We are interested in research that explores writing processes, text production, and document engineering principles as well as actual working systems that support writers in one or more aspects when producing a document. With CL&W we aim to bring together researchers from related communities, to stimulate discussion and cooperation between areas of research.

The first CL&W workshop, CL&W 2010, held at NAACL 2010 in Los Angeles, was very successful and offered researchers from different but related disciplines a platform for sharing findings and ideas. We will continue this in 2012. You are cordially invited to attend the talks and to participate in the discussion.

Registration is now open! Early registration is through March 19, 2012, late registration is through April 19, 2012. Please register via the EACL 2012 registration form:


You can either register for the main conference plus CL&W 2012, or, if you only want to participate in the workshop, you may register for CL&W 2012 only. The EACL 2012 registration form has all information about registration deadlines and fees.
