COLING 2010, the 23rd International Conference on Computational Linguistics, is being organized by the Chinese Information Processing Society of China (CIPS) and will be held in Beijing, China on August 23-27th, 2010 under the auspices of the International Committee on Computational Linguistics (ICCL) . They look forward to welcoming you to Beijing, the cultural, educational, and political capital of China, and the proud host of the 2008 Olympics.

COLING will cover a broad spectrum of technical areas related to natural language and computation. The conference will include full papers, oral presentations, poster presentations, demonstrations, tutorials, and workshops. They invite the submission of papers on original and unpublished research on all aspects of computational linguistics.
