Adobe Research at EMNLP 2019

November 1, 2019

This week, the 2019 Conference on Empirical Methods in Natural Language Processing and the 9th International Joint Conference on Natural Language (EMNLP-IJCNLP 2019) will take place in Hong Kong, China. EMNLP is one of the premiere conferences in Natural Language Processing (NLP) organized by the Association for Computational Linguistics special interest group on linguistic data (SIGDAT). The conference covers diverse research areas spanning computational approaches to natural language understanding, dialog, semantics, and discourse.

Adobe Research has been working in multimodal natural language processing and understanding and will be on hand to present recent research on dialog systems, semantics, question answering, summarization, and broadly applying NLP to build better intelligent systems. 

If you’re attending EMNLP 2019, our researchers will be on hand to present their papers and workshop sessions. We also hope you can meet with us to discuss the unique opportunities at Adobe Research to explore and solve interesting natural language problems for the millions of people who use Adobe products. If you would like to schedule time at EMNLP to meet with our researchers, e-mail Walter Chang directly at
