Joint NAACL/ICML Symposium on Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Machine Learning (ML)
June 15, 2013
Atlanta, Georgia, USA


###### Call for Participation ######

Following the success of the joint NLP/ML symposium held in 2011, the second joint symposium on Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning will be held in Atlanta, Georgia. The goal of the symposium is to foster communication and collaboration between researchers in these synergistic areas, taking advantage of the nearby locations of NAACL-HLT 2013 ( and ICML 2013 ( It will bring together members of the Association for Computational Linguistics (, and the International Machine Learning Society (

The symposium will be held on June 15, 2013 (Saturday) as part of several joint NAACL/ICML events running June 14-16. More information can be found on the NAACL ( and ICML ( websites.


The symposium will feature a series of invited talks from top researchers covering several recent, exciting topics that are relevant to both Machine Learning and NLP. These areas include but are not limited to: structured prediction, log-linear models, Bayesian modeling, deep learning, sparse representations, scalable probabilistic inference, semi-supervised and unsupervised training. Applications areas include language modeling, machine translation, learning semantic representations, topic modeling, among others.


Coming soon. You can find a list of invited talks/topics from the previous symposium here:


The symposium venue will be the Westin Peachtree Plaza hotel in Atlanta, Georgia, the site of NAACL. You can register through NAACL ( or ICML ( registration websites.
