he International Joint Conference on Natural Language Processing (IJCNLP) was initiated in 2004 by The Asian Federation of Natural Language Processing (AFNLP) Associations with the major goal to provide a platform for researchers and professionals from around the world to share their experiences related to natural language processing and computational linguistics. In the past years, IJCNLPs were held in 5 different places: Hainan Island (2004), Jeju Island (2005), Hyderabad (2008), Singapore (2009), and Chiang Mai (2011).

This year the 6th IJCNLP will be held in Nagoya, Japan, October 14-18, 2013. The conference will cover a broad spectrum of technical areas related to natural language and computation. Besides main conference, the program includes tutorials, demonstrations, and workshops.
