The 2nd Joint Myanmar-Thai NLP/AI R&D Workshop

We are pleased to announce the 2nd joint Workshop on NLP/AI R&D which will take place in Bangkok, Thailand, from Nov 18 to 20, 2020. It will be colocated with iSAI-NLP 2020. The workshop will bring together researchers, professors and students in NLP and AI. The aim of the proposed workshop is to bring together the community of ASEAN researchers interested in these areas.
