Meeting Description:

Computational Linguistics and Writing:

Writing Processes and Authoring Aids (CL&W 2010)
Workshop at NAACL-HLT 2010
Workshop date: June 5 or 6, 2010
Location: Los Angeles, USA

Writing today, whether professional, academic, or private, relies heavily on
computers. Most texts composed in the 21st century are probably written on
computers or other electronic devices, such as mobile phones. People compose
texts in word processors, text editors, content management systems, blogs,
wikis, e-mail clients, and instant messaging applications. Each of these tools
supports authors in different ways.

Call for Participation:

Early registration through May 9, 2010
Late registration through May 23, 2010

The Workshop on Computational Linguistics and Writing (CL&W 2010) provides an
overview of current developments in the area of computational linguistics for
authoring aids, and an overview of recent advances in writing research. CL&W
2010 brings together researchers from the computational linguistics and writing
research communities; we want to identify areas where computational linguistics
and writing research could benefit from each other and stimulate discussion and
interdisciplinary cooperation between these two areas of research.

You are cordially invited to attend the talks and to participate in the discussion.

Registration is now open! Early registration is through May 9, 2010, late
registration is through May 23, 2010. Please register via the NAACL-HLT 2010
registration form:


You can either register for the main conference plus CL&W 2010, or, if you only
want to participate in the workshop, you may register for CL&W 2010 only. The
NAACL-HLT 2010 registration form has all information about registration
deadlines and fees.
