Welcome to ACL 2012!
For the first time, the annual meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL) comes to Korea, a vibrant country with rich language and cultural heritage. ACL 2012 will be held in Jeju Island (濟州島) on July 8-14, 2012. In conjunction with ACL 2012, a series of research workshops and conferences including EMNLP-CoNLL will be co-located in Jeju.
Building on the success enjoyed by the past ACL conferences, ACL 2012 will continue to strive for a comprehensive conference program that covers a diverse field of computational linguistics and that recognizes the importance of both theoretical and empirical approaches to research problems.
In 2012, ACL marks its 50th year of scientific activities and community services. On behalf of the organizing committee,
I invite all of you to Jeju to join the celebration!
