Conference Information

The Georgetown University Round Table on Linguistics (GURT) is a peer-reviewed annual linguistics conference held continuously since 1949 at Georgetown University in Washington DC, with topics and co-located events varying from year to year. Under an overarching theme of ‘Computational and Corpus Linguistics’, GURT 2023 will feature four events, which are workshops or conferences focused on computational and corpus approaches to syntax but also covering theoretical issues: CxGs+NLP, Depling, Treebanks and Linguistic Theories (TLT), and Universal Dependency Workshop (UDW). All talks from all events will take place in a single (non-parallel) plenary session, with the papers from one event being presented contiguously. The goal of co-locating these events to promote cross-fertilization of ideas across subcommunities. Proceedings will be published separately for each event, and will be available in the ACL Anthology.

In order to support rich discussions and networking with minimal overhead and cost, GURT will be primarily an in-person event; we will, however, accommodate a limited number of live/synchronous remote presentations, prioritizing those with circumstances that prevent travel. University policies regarding COVID safety will be in force during the event.

Georgetown University is located in a historic neighborhood in the heart of the nation’s capital. The city is a premier tourist destination, and the region is served by Reagan National (DCA), Dulles (IAD), and Baltimore-Washington (BWI) airports.

The conference will be held at the Edward B. Bunn S.J. Intercultural Center (ICC), located on the Red Square on Georgetown University’s main campus. For detailed directions to this building, please refer to our Navigating the Campus page.
