ACL Internet site Dragomir R. Radev email@example.com Sandra Carberry firstname.lastname@example.org http://www.aclweb.org NEW ACTIVITIES - In fall 2003, the old host machine, bluewhale.cs.columbia.edu, died of old age. With a lot of help from Pablo Duboue, Andy Schlaikjaer, Kathy McKeown, and Julia Hirschberg, all from Columbia, most of the services associated with ACL's site moved to the University of Michigan. - After 10 years of hosting aclweb.org on a server at universities: Columbia University (and recently, partially at the University of Michigan), we are preparing to move the ACL site to a commercial provider. This way, we will be getting DNS, email addresses, secure registration, database servers, etc. all on one machine with dedicated (paid) customer support. ONGOING ACTIVITIES - This year, Reagan Kelly of U. Michigan redesigned the NLP/CL Universe search engine and ported it to more reliable software. Rachael Hu, Erin Doumpoulaki, and Chris Peterson, all of U. Michigan entered all new entries. The site now includes 3,454 pointers, up from 2,893 last year (an increase of 19.4%). There are 354 academic pages, 779 conference links, 79 professional organizations, 198 subject-specific resources, 365 personal pages, etc. - Some of the top queries to the Universe: semantic job opportunity 2004 information extraction translators tokenizer speech to speech translator query expansion language document clustering - The acl-news mailing list is used to announce changes to the NLP/CL Universe. After a recent cleanup of defunct addresses, the list now includes 385 members. - The unofficial Natural Language Processing FAQ (list of Frequently Asked Questions and Answers) is still available through the ACL page. It is now out of date so volunteers are sought to contribute to the list.
