NACLO 2016

at Georgetown University

The Georgetown University Department of Linguistics sponsors a test site for the yearly North American Computational Linguistics Olympiad (NACLO), a nation-wide problem solving contest for high school students. Students are given problems to solve related to language, logic, and computer science--problems that are both difficult and fun!

To register, please visit the official NACLO website.

Georgetown Test Site Information (2016)

Location within campus

The January 28th contest will be held in the Bunn Intercultural Center (ICC), Room 450.

The precise location of the March contest is to be determined. Students who qualify will be contacted directly via e-mail.

Parking

Parking is available on Georgetown's campus for a fee ($3 per hour, $20 for whole day) via the Canal Road entrance. More information is available through the Office of Facilities Management's website.

Street parking is possible but is limited in duration (two hours, I believe). If you move your car between zones, however, it's possible to squeeze more time out. I don't have much experience with that, though, and I do not recommend it. The Metropolitan Police actively tickets.

FAQ

Can I take the test at a different time? No, unfortunately. Because this is a nation-wide contest, students must take the test during the national test rounds to protect test integrity.
