August 16 - 18, 2017, Sedona Hotel, Yangon, Myanmar


PACLING 2017 will be a high-quality, workshop-style conference whose aim is to promote friendly scientific interaction relating to computational linguistics among Pacific Rim countries. The emphasis of the conference is on interdisciplinary scientific exchange demonstrating openness towards original high-quality research including one which might fall outside current dominant schools of thought, and on technological transfer within and across the Pacific region.
The conference represents a unique forum for scientific and technological exchange, being smaller than ACL and COLING, and more regional with extensive representation from the Pacific.


Substantial, original, and unpublished research is welcome on any topics in computational linguistics, including, but not limited to the following:

  • Phonology and Phonetics
  • Morphology and Morphological Analysis
  • Syntax and Syntactic Analysis
  • Semantics and Semantic Analysis
  • Pragmatics and Discourse Analysis
  • Spoken Language and Dialogue
  • Language Resources
  • Corpora and Corpus-based Language Processing
  • Text and Message Understanding
