Bart Jongejan and I presented our paper with the title Automatic training of lemmatization rules that handle morphological changes in pre-, in- and suffixes alike (pdf) at ACL-IJCNLP 2009, in Singapore.
The ACL-IJCNLP 2009 conference is an international conference but of course most of the 500 participants came from Asia.
Bart obtained some questions and suggestions from Ulf Hermjakob and Eduard Hovy both from University of California/ISI.
After the presentation Bart and Hercules relaxed with a Singapore Sling at Raffles Hotel.
There is always an ACL-disco at the ACL-conferences.
After the disco one needs to get the feet treated by doctor fishes.
In Singapore they are VERY fond of the durian fruit.
and there are also BIG fruit bats.
Next year ACL-2010 will take place in Uppsala Stockholm.
