North American Computational Linguistics Olympiad (NACLO)


High School and Middle School students who like learning foreign languages, puzzle-solving, breaking codes, combinatorics, and/or conjugations, are invited to participate in the North American Computational Linguistics Olympiad (NACLO). Each January thousands of Middle and High School students across North America participate in NACLO, with the top performing participants moving forward to the invitational and then international competitions. The Stony Brook University Linguistics Department, in conjunction with the Institute of Advanced Computational Science, offers a place for students to participate in the Olympiad, as well as provide practice sessions prior to it to help students better understand the kinds of puzzles they will be solving.
