NAACL-HLT 2010 Workshop on Computational Linguistics and Writing:
Writing Processes and Authoring Aids (CL&W 2010)


Workshop date: June 6, 2010

Location: Millenium Biltmore Hotel, Los Angeles, CA, USA

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.
