For the first time, the annual meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL) takes place in Bulgaria. ACL 2013 will be held in Sofia, Bulgaria's capital, August 4-9, 2013. As in previous years, the program of the conference includes a poster session, tutorials, workshops and demonstrations in addition to the main conference.

ACL is the premier conference of the field of computational linguistics, covering a broad spectrum of diverse research areas that are concerned with computational approaches to natural language. An exciting new development this year is that the conference program will include the presentation of papers that have been accepted at Transactions of the ACL (TACL), the new journal of the ACL.

On behalf of the organizing committee I invite you to join us in Sofia for ACL 2013!
