Our many international conferences and workshops

A key part of RGCL’s commitment to the wider research community is our ongoing engagement with, and organising of, international research events. Over the past 25 years, RGCL has been instrumental in organising dozens of conferences, symposia, workshops and summer schools, in locations ranging from Varna and Hissar in Bulgaria, to Malaga, London, Luxembourg, and Rhodes, drawing some of the world’s best scholars and practitioners in Computational Linguistics, Natural Language Processing, Corpus Linguistics, and Translation Technology.
