Joint conference of the 47th Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics and
the 4th International Joint Conference on Natural Language Processing of the Asian Federation of Natural Language Processing

Call for Exhibitions

The Annual Meeting of the ACL is the primary event for computational linguistics (CL) and natural language processing (NLP) in the calendar year. In 2009, it is combined with the International Joint Conference on Natural Language Processing, which is the premier event for CL and NLP in Asia. In recent years, the event has attracted over 1000 professionals from around the world. The number and calibre of participants, from academia and industry, provides an unrivalled opportunity to share ideas and catch up on the latest advances in the field. In addition, the Singapore venue for ACL-IJCNLP 2009 will provide a focal point for the rapidly-growing Asian market.

If you have a commercial product or service of interest to the CL and NLP community, the ACL 2009 exhibits program is the perfect way to introduce it to potential customers. Possible application areas include: mobile communications, machine translation, the semantic web, language interfaces to robots, dialogue systems, CL publications and e-journals.

The ACL 2009 exhibits space is ideally located near both the presentation halls and breakout spaces. High-speed internet connectivity as well as a wide range of audio-visual equipment is available to exhibitors.

We hope to feature a wide range of products in the exhibits program, including:

  • NLP technologies, including machine translation, natural language understanding, dialogue processing and natural language generation systems

  • Next-generation web services based on NLP technologies

  • Natural language processing components, such as lexicons and parsers

  • Speech recognition and understanding systems

  • Speech translation and spoken dialogue systems

  • Tools and software used in NLP research, such as tools for corpora analysis

  • Tools and software for developing natural language applications, for example, dialogue design tools, and tools for customizing NLP and speech recognition systems

  • Tools and software for teaching NLP

  • Corpora

  • Technical books and publications related to NLP/CL

Note that the exhibits program is targeted primarily at commercial products.

On behalf of the ACL-IJCNLP 2009 organising committee, we would like to invite you to be part of the ACL-IJCNLP 2009 exhibits program. If you are interested, please contact the Exhibition Chairs (see below). The presence of your organization will greatly enhance the event, and facilitate the further advancement of the field of CL/NLP.
