Dublin, Ireland, 23-29 August, 2014

With St Patrick’s Day upon us many great landmarks around the world are
turning green to honour the Patron Saint of Ireland and to shine a
spotlight on the Emerald Isle. We’re very proud to host COLING here in
Ireland this year so to mark the occasion we’re happy to share with you
some highlights of this year’s event.

Invited speakers

The Programme Committee and Scientific Advisory Board have been working
hard to ensure a varied and interesting range of invited talks for this
year’s event. This work has proven quite fruitful and we’re pleased to
announce Martin Kay (Stanford University), Qun Liu (CNGL) and Ted Gibson
(MIT) as invited speakers for this year’s conference. The invited
speaker programme is not complete yet, so be sure to keep an eye out for
future announcements

Social Programme Announced
In addition to the scientific programme, we have put a lot of effort
into arranging a wide and varied social programme for our delegates. The
Gala Dinner will take place on Tuesday August 26th in the Guinness
Storehouse at the world famous St. James’ Gate Guinness Brewery. This is
the most visited tourist attraction in Ireland, and offers our delegates
an opportunity to visit this truly unique site which is internationally
renowned and to enjoy some Irish hospitality. For more information see .

An excursion day on the Wednesday of the conference is something of a 
COLING tradition and this year is no exception. With so many sights and 
attractions to see in Dublin and the surrounding areas deciding on a 
single trip was impossible. So for this year’s excursion day we’ve been 
creative. Delegates have a choice of 4 different destinations catering 
for lovers of history, culture, scenery and the city. Then all the 
excursions converge in the historical Dining Hall of Trinity College 
(which was founded by Queen Elizabeth I) in the heart of the city centre 
for lunch. After lunch delegates have time to explore the streets of 
Dublin; Grafton Street, Dublin’s main shopping area is right beside 
Trinity College and other popular attractions close by are Dublin 
Castle, the National Gallery, the Natural History Museum & Temple Bar. 
For more information see .
