SIG Semitic The SIG is healthy. We had a SIG meeting as a one-day EACL Workshop in Athens this year, which attracted about 20 submissions and a similar number of participants. The next meeting is planned for LREC-2010 in Malta next year. We have a working web site and a low-key but active mailing list. The Secretary position was up for elections this year, and Mona Diab was elected for a 3-year term. One initiative Mona is pursuing is endorsing related events and activities; specifically, we offered to endorse the ongoing activities and future events of MEDAR (http://www.medar.info/ ).
