Computational linguistics is the study of natural language from a computational perspective. This meeting aims to bring together researchers at McGill working in different aspects of the field, from theoretical issues to applied natural language processing. We aim to attract participants from multiple research groups, from within the School of Computer Science as well as from other departments (e.g., Linguistics, Information Studies).

The format of the meetings will vary, from high-level overview talks and invited presentations to informal work-in-progress talks or reading group discussions. We will have clusters of several meetings that have a coherent theme or related topic.

This meeting was started by Prof. Jackie Chi Kit Cheung, from the Reasoning and Learning Lab in the School of Computer Science. It is currently organized by Ali Emami. To join the mailing list, send an e-mail to compling-owner [@cs.mcgill.ca].
