Launch of Transactions of the Association for Computational Linguistics (TACL)

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).

2008 ACL Newsletter

The newsletter of the Association for Computational Linguistics

Dear ACL members,

Our annual conference, ACL-08:HLT (Human Language Technologies) is still two months away so let me take the time in this newsletter to send you some updates about ACL. Please contact me at sekrettary [at] org.aclweb (spellcheck and unscramble before writing) by April 30 if you have any suggestions for interesting activities. I will bring them to the ACL exec for discussion.

ACL Video Archive

The ACL Video Archive is a pilot program with the aims of making teaching materials freely available to facilitate scientific communication, and to document history and progress in our field. The initiative has been started in June 2007 at the ACL's 45th Annual Meeting in Prague, with the technical infrastructure currently being built up by volunteers. The archive is available at http://www.aclweb.org/videoarchive.

Changes to the ACL executive board

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.
