Natural Language Processing Seminar

The Berkeley NLP Seminar is a gathering place for researchers from across campus to meet and discuss the latest research. We have invited talks on alternating weeks to hear about and discuss the latest research in natural language processing. All interested researchers are welcome to attend.

If you’d like to receive talk announcements, sign up for the email list (restricted to the UC Berkeley community).
