Welcome


The goal of Southern California Natural Language Processing Symposium is to gather researchers from the southern California region with broad expertise in natural language processing. The symposium will provide a participatory environment where attendees from a variety of fields working on natural language processing can share and discuss their latest findings.

This year, SoCal NLP Symposium will be hosted on April 6, 2018 at University of California, Irvine, and it will include invited talks from academia and industry, contributed work, poster presentations and open discussion. We welcome all students, postdocs, and faculty members from universities in the region, including UC Irvine, University of Southern California (USC), UC Los Angeles, UC Santa Barbara, UC Riverside, Caltech, UC San Diego, and other schools to join us this April.

Please stay tuned for more information!
