UTSA to Host NACLO 2020 Contest

January 8, 2020

The UTSA Department of Modern Languages and Literatures is serving as a host for the 2020 North American Computational Linguistics Open Competition (NACLO).  

The contest invites high-school students to compete by solving linguistic puzzles. In solving these puzzles, 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.

The contest consists of two events: the Open Competition and the Invititational Round and students need to register before January 22, 2020. Practice problems are available on the NACLO web site.
