Center for Research in Urdu Language Processing

Center for Research in Urdu Language Processing (CRULP) is conducting research and development in linguistic and computational aspects of Urdu and other languages of Pakistan. Formation of CRULP was announced at the “First National Urdu Software Development Workshop” held in March 2001 at FAST-NU, Lahore and was established in July 2001. The center was established to conduct research and development in three areas including Speech Processing, Computational Linguistics and Script Processing. In addition, this center also arranges and participates in seminars, workshops and conferences dedicated to promote Urdu Language processing.
