The European Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics (EACL) invites proposals to host the 2017 EACL conference, to be held in Europe, the Middle East or Africa (EMEA) in Spring (preferably April) 2017. From 2014 EACL takes place every 3 years. The 2017 conference will be the 15th meeting of the EACL.
We seek draft proposals from prospective bidders. Based on an evaluation of the draft proposals received, promising bidders will be asked to provide additional information for the final selection.
ACL announces the launch of Transactions of the Association for Computational Linguistics (TACL), a new ACL-sponsored journal that publishes papers in all areas of computational linguistics and natural language processing.
A key feature of TACL is that papers accepted for publication will be eligible for presentation at the ACL main conference. (Presentation is optional; authors do not have to present their papers at the conference).
Following the decision of the ACL Executive Committee, which was announced at the ACL Business Meeting this year in Portland, we are now happy to launch the TACL journal - Transactions of the Association for Computational Linguistics.
I am happy to announce that the ACL Executive Committee has approved the creation of an ACL Fellows program, which recognizes ACL members whose contributions to the field have been most extraordinary. To be named a Fellow, a candidate must have been a member of the ACL for the past three consecutive years and be nominated by a current ACL member.
I am happy to announce that two new ACL members will join the exec as of January 1, 2012:
- vice-president-elect: Gertjan van Noord, University of Groningen, the Netherlands
- member: Jian Su, Institute for Infocomm Research, Singapore
They replace Ido Dagan (current past president) and Lori Levin (member). The ACL exec acknowledges Lori and Ido for their for the hard work they devoted to ACL during their terms.
We are pleased to announce the outcome of the elections for new members of the ACL board for 2011:
- VP-Elect: Haifeng Wang

- Secretary: Dragomir Radev
We congratulate the elected candidates, and we thank all those members who voted in the election.
