This is a pre-conference practice workshop for both local students, practitioners and faculty working in natural language processing to network. This is a free event, open to the public, but requires registration. It will be held in two parallel tracks at the School's Seminar Room 2 and Seminar Room 3 [ Map ] [ Floorplan ]
