Meeting Description:

Sharif University of Technology will host the 3rd Conference on Computational Linguistics in November 19-20, this year. The papers presented in this event are scientific achievements of researchers who specialize in theoretical and practical realms of linguistics, cognitive sciences, artificial intelligence, machine translation, information and communication technology, designing of search engines, data development from language corpora, text and speech processing, text-to-speech conversion, speech-to-text conversion, and developing databases. Therefore, the conference will encompass a broad range of researches investigating issues in natural language processing and practical studies in the field of computation linguistics.

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.
