A treasure trove for more information on the topic of computational linguistics or natural-language processing

The anthology provides an overview of ACL events and non-ACL events.

“Computational linguistics is the scientific study of language from a computational perspective.”

These models can be “knowledge-based” (“hand-crafted”) or “data-driven” (“statistical” or “empirical”).
