Seeking Nominations for Editors of CL and TACL Journals

The ACL is seeking nominations for editorships of two ACL journals, Computational Linguistics (CL) and Transactions of the Association for Computational Linguistics (TACL). Currently, CL is the community’s forum for comprehensive longer papers, and TACL is the venue for shorter papers that also get a conference presentation. You may nominate the same candidate for both positions. Self-nominations are also accepted.

Instructions for nominations are as follows:
1. Nominations for a five-year term as Editor of Computational Linguistics

New Policies for Submission, Review and Citation

The ACL Executive Committee has adopted new policies for submission to *ACL conferences and the TACL journal. The policies specify under what conditions papers available as preprints can be submitted for double-blind review, and also clarify the status of preprints with respect to citation and review. The new policies have been developed by a working group appointed by the Executive Committee, taking into account the results of our membership survey and discussions at the ACL business meeting in Vancouver.

Survey Report on Preprint Publishing and Reviewing

The ACL Executive Committee has recently completed a survey on preprint publishing and reviewing in order to gather more information about common practices among our members and seek opinions on future policy. We are happy to announce that a report containing results and analysis from the survey is now available. [Please click here to download the report].

ACL Expresses Concern about New Executive Order Concerning Immigration

The Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL), a global scientific and educational organization representing the natural language processing community, expresses strong disagreement with U.S. Presidential Executive Order 13769, which imposes a 90-day suspension of visas to nationals of seven countries and additional examination of current green card and visa holders from those countries.
