Second Workshop on Computational Linguistics and Writing (CL&W 2012):
Linguistic and Cognitive Aspects of
Document Creation and Document Engineering
CL&W 2012 > Program


This is a half-day workshop, starting after lunch.

We will have session with talks from computational linguistics and from writing research and a plenary discussion.  The time slot for each talk will be 25 minutes, including discussion. During breaks participants of CL&W 2012 can meet with participants of other workshops at EACL 2012.

The workshop will end with a discussion intended to combine views from computational linguistics and writing research, to identify future directions for research, and to stimulate interdisciplinary networking and cooperation between writing researchers and computational linguists.
