Welcome to the COLING•ACL 2006 web site

A welcome from the local organising chairs, Robert Dale and Cécile Paris.

Coling/ACL2006 is the joint conference of the International Committee on Computational Linguistics and the Association for Computational Linguistics. The conference will be held in Sydney, Australia, from 17th–21st July 2006, with tutorials on July 16, workshops on July 22-23, and co-located events on July 15-16 and July 22-23.

This is only the third time in their 40+ year histories that the two peak international conferences on language technology, natural language processing and computational linguistics have been combined; it's also the first time the events have been held in the southern hemisphere.

With four days of main conference sessions, a full complement of tutorials, and a growing list of co-located workshops, this is an event you will not want to miss. Take this opportunity to visit one of the world's most exciting and beautiful cities!

Pre-conference REGISTRATION is now CLOSED.

You may still register onsite at the pre-conference workshops and tutorials, or the main conference, at onsite fees.
