NACLO stands for the North American Computational Linguistics Olympiad. It is a contest for high-school (and younger) students to solve problems relating to linguistics and computational linguistics. No advanced knowledge of linguistics is required. Students may participate at their high school or at a nearby university site. University of Texas at Dallas will be a local site again in 2017. The open round of the contest will take place on January 26. Well-performing students will be invited to a second round to be held on March 9. The top students in the second round will have a chance to participate in the 14th International Linguistics Olympiad. More information about NACLO can be found at the official site.
You can find directions to University of Texas at Dallas here. We will meet in room ECSS 3.503.
We will not be holding a problem session this year.
