1.  EACL 2009
-------------

This will take place in Athens from March 30th--April 3rd.  The chairs
for EACL 2009 have now been chosen:

Local Organising Chair:	   Vangelis Karkaletsis
Programme Chairs	   Claire Gardent
			   Joakim Nivre
Sponsorship Chairs	   Josef van Genabith
			   Philipp Koehn     
Tutorials Chairs	   Emiel Krahmer
			   David Weir	
Workshop Chairs		   Steve Clark	
			   Miriam Butt
Demos Chairs		   Jorn Kreutel
Publications Chairs	   David Schlangen
			   Kemal Oflazer

Under the new arrangements for conference sponsorship, Philipp and
Josef are also sponsorship chairs for ACL 2009 and NAACL 2009.

Current state of progress is as follows:

o	Contracts between NCSR (the host institution) and BTOB
	(professional events organiser) and between BTOB and Megaron
	Mousikis (the venue) are now signed.  We are yet to sign the
	contract between ACL and NCSR!  But this is imminent, and the
	details of the contract are basically finalised.
o	The call for papers for the main programme was issued about 8
	weeks ago.
o	The joint call for workshop proposals (among ACL, EACL and
	NAACL 2009) was issued at the beginning of April.
o	The website is up (www.eacl2009.gr)
o	A draft call for tutorial proposals is now written.  The final
	draft will be issued in about 2 weeks.
o	A price list for various levels of EACL sponsorship are now
	fixed, as part of a larger package of sponsorship prices that
	include EACL and NAACL conferences too.  
o	The style files are finalised.

I will make a site visit to Athens in October, to look at the
conference, reception and banqueting facilities.
