The International Conference on Asian Language Processing (IALP) is a series of conferences with unique focus on Asian Language Processing. The conference aims to advance the science and technology of all the aspects of Asian Language Processing by providing a forum for researchers in the different fields of language study all over the world to meet.

The first meeting of the series was held in Singapore in 1986 and was called the "International Conference on Chinese Computing (ICCC)" then.

This meeting initiated the study of Chinese and oriental languages processing in Singapore and resulted in the formation of COLIPS in Singapore in 1988, as well as the publication of the journal "Communications of COLIPS" in 1991, which is known as "International Journal on Asian Language Processing" today.

Over the years, IALP has developed into one of important annual events on nature language processing in Asia. IALP 2008 was held in Chiang Mai, Thailand, IALP 2009 was held in Singapore, IALP 2010 was held in Harbin, and IALP 2011 was held in Penang, Malaysia.
