Welcome to IWPT 2020

IWPT 2020 continues the tradition of biennial meetings of SIGPARSE, the Special Interest Group on Natural Language Parsing of the Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL).

The conference will take place in Seattle, WA, USA, as a one-day ACL 2020 co-located event.

IWPT addresses all aspects of computational structural analysis of natural language. For a non-exhaustive list of specific topics, please see the call for papers.

Starting in 2020, IWPT establishes a series of parsing-oriented shared tasks; the 2020 IWPT Shared Task will be on Multilingual Parsing into Enhanced Universal Dependendies.
