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.
Congratulations to all of you who qualified for the Invitational Round! The Invitational Round will be held at Princeton University on March 9, 2017 in Joseph Henry House, Room 16 from 9:00am to 1:00pm. Please plan to arrive by 8:45am. Parking is available in lots 21 and 23.
