[July 16, 2017]
After eleven years as the ACL Wiki Editor, Peter Turney is stepping down. ACL is pleased to announce that the new ACL Wiki Editor is Chunliang Lyu, a PhD graduate from the Chinese University of Hong Kong, with a thesis on entity modeling and search in text. He has extensive experience with MediaWiki software, applied as a knowledge management system.
The ACL Wiki opened to the public on October 18th, 2006. The mandate of the wiki is to facilitate the sharing of information on all aspects of Computational Linguistics. The ACL Wiki includes pointers to corpora, software, journals, conferences, workshops, blogs, researcher home pages, state-of-the-art system comparisons, employment opportunities, course descriptions, and many other resources for computational linguists.
The following table summarizes the growth of the wiki. We are no longer reporting the number of page views in this table, since the consensus on MediaWiki is that these numbers are not reliable. The number of edits has stabilized at approximately one edit per day. Current statistics are available online on the Wiki.
|Year||Cumulative edits||Yearly edits||Daily edits||Number of long pages||New long pages|
The wiki hosts three Community Portals:
The portals contain a wealth of useful information for researchers in these communities. Community Portals are an excellent tool for supporting a community of researchers who share a common interest in a specific problem.
The wiki also hosts two special interest groups:
We invite more SIGs to use the wiki as a host for their pages.
All members of ACL are strongly encouraged to contribute to the ACL Wiki. Whatever subfield of Computational Linguistics you work in, this is your opportunity to raise the profile of research in your area. The time you invest in the ACL Wiki will have high returns for the community.
