Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics
12th Meeting of the ACL Special Interest Group in Computational Morphology, Phonology and Phonetics
Montreal, Quebec, Canada
June 7, 2012
One of the missions of SIGMORPHON is to encourage interaction between work in computational linguistics and work in theoretical phonetics, phonology and morphology, and to ensure that each of these fields profits from the interaction. Our recent meetings have been successful in this regard, and we hope to see this continue in 2012. Many mainstream linguists studying phonetics, phonology and morphology are employing computational tools and models that are of considerable interest to computational linguists. Similarly, models and tools developed by and for computational linguists may be of interest to theoretical linguists working in these areas. This workshop provides a forum for these researchers to interact and become exposed to each other’s ideas and research.
This workshop will be the twelfth meeting of SIGMORPHON (formerly called SIGPHON). We will hold a full-day workshop consisting of approximately 12 half-hour presentations.
The workshop will be held on June 7, immediately after the NAACL 2012 meeting at Le Centre Sheraton, Montreal, Canada.
