Singapore, the culturally and technologically vibrant Garden City of Asia, is the stage set for the landmark joint conference of the 47th Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics and the 4th International Joint Conference on Natural Language Processing on 2-7 August, 2009.

For the first time, the flagship conferences of the Association of Computational Linguistics (ACL) and Asian Federation of Natural Language Processing (AFNLP) -- the ACL and IJCNLP -- are jointly organized as a single event. The ACL-IJCNLP 2009 will cover a broad spectrum of technical areas related to natural language and computation. You are welcome to participate in the conference to discuss the latest research findings. The 2009 Conference on Empirical Methods in Natural Language Processing (EMNLP) will also be co-located with ACL-IJCNLP 2009 right here in Singapore.

With this exciting line-up of events, we welcome members of the various research communities to Singapore. Popularly known as "The Garden City" for its lush, green landscape couching an advanced infrastructure, the island is situated at the southern tip of the Malaysian Peninsula. This small yet properous South-East Asian nation is a cosmopolitan city brimming with diversity, which is well connected by more than 70 airlines flying to more than 160 cities in 53 countries. Natives of Singapore traditionally comprise members of the Chinese, Malay, Indian, and Eurasian ethnic groups, while its residents today hail from the world over. The multicultural heritage of Singaporeans is very much alive through the different languages, cuisines, and ethnic lifestyles. This rich cultural backdrop is certainly no hindrance to modernity and progress, as demonstrated by Singapore's icon as a shopping and dining paradise. With the many museums, theme parks and a bustling nightlife, it is indeed an excellent spot to unwind with the family or alone while enjoying the convenience of a modern city.

The conference will take place at Suntec Singapore International Convention & Exhibition Centre, which is only 20 minutes from Changi International Airport. Suntec Singapore offers direct access to 5,200 hotel rooms, 1,000 shops, 300 restaurants and a world-class performing arts centre. Facilities are interconnected and easily accessible via air-conditioned tunnels and covered walkways. At no time are you more than a 15-minute walk from Suntec Singapore.
