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.
