COVID 19 Update

The NACLO 2021 open round is scheduled for January 28, 2021. This will primarily take place virtually with all students given the option to register for the open round with the "at-home" option. Due to the ongoing pandemic, SDSU will not be able to host this year, so we encourage any interested students to take advantage of the on-line competition!

What is NACLO?

The North American Computational Linguistics Open Competition is a contest in which high school students solve linguistic puzzles. In solving these puzzles, students learn about the diversity and consistency of language, while exercising logic skills. No prior knowledge of linguistics or second languages is necessary. Professionals in linguistics, computational linguistics and language technologies use dozens of languages to create engaging problems that represent cutting edge issues in their fields. The competition has attracted top students to study and work in those same fields. It is truly an opportunity for young people to experience a taste of natural language processing in the 21st century.

When is NACLO?

The NACLO open round will be held online from 9:00am to 12:00pm on January 28, 2021.  See the NACLO website for details about registration and participation.
