NACLO at Princeton
The North American Computational Linguistics Olympiad is a contest in which high-school students solve linguistics puzzles, roughly parallel to the USAMO/USAPhO/USNCO/USACO for math, physics, chemistry, and computer science. In solving the problems, students learn about the diversity and consistency of language, while exercising logic skills. No prior knowledge of linguistics or second languages is necessary.
The winners of the Invitational Round are eligible to represent North America at the International Linguistics Olympiad.
We are pleased to host a local site of the 2017 NACLO at Princeton University. Any high school or middle school student is invited to participate in the Open Round. The best performing students on the Open Round will be notified in early March that they have qualified for the Invitational Round. For more information, please contact Professor Christiane Fellbaum at fellbaum(at)princeton(dot)edu or Dora Demszky at ddemszky(at)princeton(dot)edu.
The Open Round will be held at Princeton University on January 26, 2017 in McCosh Hall, Room 28 from 10:00am to 1:00pm. Please plan to arrive by 9:45am. Parking is available in lots 21 and 23.
We'll be holding a practice session on Sunday, January 15th, from 2pm to 3:30pm in 1-S-5 Green Hall.
