Policy on EACL conference schedule

Upon a request from the ACL exececutive committee, through the Sudoku committee, the EACL board has decided to adopt a new policy for the schedule of the EACL conferences. Accordingly, starting with year 2014, the stand-alone EACL conferences will be held in those years in which the ACL conference takes place in the American Region. This policy will contribute to equalizing the number of CL conferences held each year.


EACL newsletter

Since 2006 EACL has been issuing one newsletter per year, reporting on main CL events taking place in Europe and geographically related areas. With the main goal of reviving its relationships with the several regional CL organizations in Europe, the EACL board has now decided to add a second newsletter per year, reporting on the regional conferences organized by these associations. This will start with year 2010.

The EACL board has nominated the following people as regional representatives for the European region in the ACL sponsorship committee for 2010:

Stephen Pulman Oxford University, UK
