NACLO was rescheduled due to inclemet weather. The new date is February 7th.

 

 

The UAB Department of Computer and Information Sciences (CIS) will be a site for the NACLO 2014!

The contest will take place on Friday, February 7th from 9:00 to noon at the Heritage Hall building room 126.


What is NACLO?

This olympiad is a contest in which high-school students solve linguistic puzzles. In solving the problems, students learn about the diversity and consistency of language, while exercising logic skills. No prior knowledge of linguistics or second languages is necessary. Professionals in linguistics, computational linguistics and language technologies use dozens of languages to create engaging problems that represent cutting edge issues in their fields. The competition has attracted top students to study and work in those same fields. It is truly an opportunity for young people to experience a taste of natural-language processing in the 21st century.
