The Second Midwest Computational Linguistics Colloquium (MCLC-2005)

MCLC-2005

The Computational Linguistics and Language Technologies Group of the Departments of Linguistics and Computer Science and Engineering at The Ohio State University are pleased to sponsor the second meeting of the Midwest Computational Linguistics Colloquium (MCLC). This colloquium offers a less formal forum for computational linguistics researchers to get together and present ideas and work. It is intended to be primarily for researchers from the Midwest region, but applications from all regions are welcome. The first meeting of MCLC was successfully held at University of Indiana Bloomington in 2004, and with this second installment it is on its way to becoming an annual event.

Invited Speaker

Richard Sproat, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

"Named Entity Recognition and Transliteration for 50 Languages"
