This week, the premier conference on Empirical Methods in Natural Language Processing (EMNLP 2022) is being held in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. We are proud to be a Diamond Sponsor of EMNLP 2022, with Google researchers contributing at all levels. This year we are presenting over 50 papers and are actively involved in 10 different workshops and tutorials.

If you’re registered for EMNLP 2022, we hope you’ll visit the Google booth to learn more about the exciting work across various topics, including language interactions, causal inference, question answering and more. Take a look below to learn more about the Google research being presented at EMNLP 2022 (Google affiliations in bold).
