EMNLP-IJCNLP 2019

EMNLP-IJCNLP 2019, staged from 3-7 November 2019 at AsiaWorld-Expo, was the first joint EMNLP and IJCNLP conference and Asia’s largest in 20 years.  Despite happenings in the city, the overall attendance rate surpassed expectations by 25%.  The five-day conference was jam-packed with keynotes, workshops, tutorials, and an evening welcome cocktail at Hong Kong Disneyland that gave delegates a diversified experience of Lantau Island. They hailed mainly from Mainland China, the United States and the United Kingdom. Let's hear why the city is an ideal place for researchers and professionals to come for exchange.

From the organiser's point of view, the venue, facilities and services are all critical issues to consider when making a decision. I think Hong Kong, AWE (AsiaWorld Expo) and Tourism Board have what it takes. If I have to choose again, I will choose Lantau Island and AWE. Everybody is happy, and I am happy.

Hong Kong came out way ahead; the venue (AsiaWorld-Expo) turned out to be perfect. Being close to the airport made it convenient for attendees, and a social event at Hong Kong Disneyland.

Hong Kong is a place where east meets west. The infrastructure, the culture and welcoming environment make it ideal for mainland participants to come for exchange. In terms of attendance scale, this event has far exceeded any past conferences in the region.
