COLING 2014 (, the 25th International Conference on Computational Linguistics, will be organised by CNGL (Centre for Global Intelligent Content) at the Helix Convention Centre at Dublin City University (DCU) from 23-29 August 2014. The COLING conference is organised under the auspices of the International Committee on Computational Linguistics (ICCL).


The COLING conference has a history that dates back to the 1960s. The conference is held every two years and regularly attracts more than 700 delegates. The 1st conference was held in New York, 1965. Since then, the conference has developed into one of the premier Natural Language Processing conferences world-wide.
