We are proud that COLING 2016, the 26th International Conference on Computational Linguistics, a premier international event in the areas of Computational Linguistics (CL), Language Technologies (LT) and Natural Language Processing (NLP), will be organized by the Japanese Association of Natural Language Processing at Osaka International Convention Center (OICC) from 11th-16th December 2016. Osaka is the second largest city in Japan. COLING regularly attracts more than 700 delegates from academia, industry and public organizations across the planet.
With the tremendous impact and growth of COLING over many years, we have set out a comprehensive offering of corporate sponsorship and support opportunities for industry participants.
The COLING 2016 organizing committee is committed to working in close partnership with corporate and non-profit organization supporters to maximize the benefits of sponsorship and provide opportunities for sponsors to engage appropriately with COLING delegates. With this in mind, if you wish to explore additional options for support or means of engagement with the COLING 2016 community please feel free to contact the sponsorship chairs at s...@coling2016.anlp.jp.
The COLING 2016 organizing committee has set out to ensure a memorable experience for delegates of the 26th COLING conference by showcasing an excellent scientific program in the context of an exceptional social and cultural experience, while taking advantage of Osaka's vast array of historical, cultural and lively social venues. Osaka enjoys its reputation as the nation's kitchen or gourmand's paradise with Osaka's traditional cuisine for ordinary people. It is famous as the mercantile mecca and the open culture. It is also less than one hour train ride to two famous old Japanese capitals, Kyoto and Nara. There will be no time to get bored even outside of the conference rooms.
The COLING 2016 organizing committee looks forward to working closely with corporate sponsors toward continuing the 50 year tradition of successful COLING conferences and making the 26th edition one that will be long remembered and fondly recalled.
