ACL SIG Guidelines

Summary

  • There is a total of 20 SIGs (including SIGSLAV, founded on 27-Nov-2014, and SIGUR, founded on 18-Aug-2015).
  • According to the SIG creation guidelines (as of 27-August-2010), a SIG should hold elections every two years which is the case for the majority of the SIGs.
  • There are nine SIGs that do not follow the two-year election pattern: SIGANN, SIGBioMed, SIGFSM, SIGLEX, SIGMT, SIGNLL, SIGPARSE, SIGSEM, SIGWAC. Apart from SIGLEX and SIGANN, all these SIGs have a three-year term in their constitution.
  • Since its founding in 2009, SIGMT does not seem to have had any election.
