About The Association for Natural Language Processing
In recent years, the importance of research on theories, algorithms and systems related to language processing has been increasing, the importance of language processing research mainly in the United States and Europe has also increased, and there is a need for a place where researchers of linguistics and computer science can commonly discuss.
