The conference(JapTAL 2012) will take place in the city of Kanazawa, a leading tourist city where 7 million tourists visit every year. It was a great castle town ruled by an influential leader from the 17th century to the second half of the 19th century. Kanazawa has not suffered from any war devastation or big natural disaster up to now. Therefore, Kanazawa maintains rows of historical houses and inherits traditional handicrafts and traditional performing arts.

JapTAL is the eighth in the series of the TAL conferences, following IceTAL 2010 (Reykjavik, Iceland), GoTAL 2008 (Gothenburg, Sweden), FinTAL 2006 (Turku, Finland), EsTAL 2004 (Alicante, Spain), PorTAL 2002 (Faro, Portugal), VexTAL 1999 (Venice, Italy) and FracTAL 1997 (Besancon, France).

The main purpose of the TAL conference series is to bring together scientists representing linguistics, computer science and related fields, sharing a common interest in the advancement of computational linguistics and natural language processing.

The conference will consist of keynote talks, oral and poster presentations, invited sessions and workshops, on the applications and theory of natural language processing and related areas. It will provide excellent opportunities for the presentation of interesting new research results and discussion about them, leading to knowledge transfer and the generation of new ideas.
