We are excited to announce the two recipients of the 2016 NAACL Emerging Regions Fund Award:

  • The Federal University of Juiz de Fora, to support a theme session of Computational Semantics with Frames and Constructions.
  • The Instituto Caro y Cuervo and Universidad Nacional de Colombia, for the organization of a national meeting of researchers of Computational Linguistics and Corpus Linguistics.

Both recipients will receive $1,500 USD. This year was a particularly competitive year as we had a record number of submissions (11).
