CoNLL 2017

August 3-4, 2017
Vancouver, Canada

CoNLL is a top-tier conference, yearly organized by SIGNLL (ACL's Special Interest Group on Natural Language Learning). This year, CoNLL will be colocated with ACL 2017 in Vancouver, Canada. The special focus of this edition is on statistical, cognitive and grammatical inference.


The conference schedule is now available. CoNLL will be held in Salon E/F of the Westin Bayshore (the ACL conference hotel). An ordered list of accepted papers is also still available.

Note for Poster Presenters:

Poster boards are self standing display boards, 4 feet (121cm) wide and 3 feet (91cm) tall, placed on 6 foot (182cm) long, 18 inch (45cm) deep tables. You are free to choose poster dimensions so long as they fit on the boards; we suggest that landscape orientation is likely to work best. Pushpins, clips, double-sided tape, etc. will be provided to affix the posters to the boards.

Best Paper Award

We are delighted to announce that Afra Alishahi, Marie Barking, and Gregorz Chrupała are the recipients of the Best Paper Award for "Encoding of phonology in a recurrent neural model of grounded speech"!
