The Society for Computation in Linguistics (SCiL) is devoted to facilitating and promoting research on computational and mathematical approaches in Linguistics. SCiL aims to provide a central forum for exchange of ideas and dissemination of original research results on computational approaches in any area of linguistics. In addition to providing a forum for researchers already working in these areas, SCiL hosts regular meetings (the first of which will be co-located with LSA 2018 in Salt Lake City, Utah) that feature high-quality research presentations and peer-reviewed proceedings to be published with the Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL) Anthology.
