A WIKI FOR COMPUTATIONAL LINGUISTICS

The ACL has created a new wiki specifically for Computational Linguistics:

http://aclweb.org/aclwiki

The purpose of this wiki is to facilitate the sharing of information on
all aspects of Computational Linguistics.

Wikipedia contains some excellent articles on Computational
Linguistics, but the mandate of Wikipedia is to be an encyclopedia.
This means that Wikipedia articles must be written for a general
audience, not for specialists. It also means that content such as job
ads and course outlines is not suitable for Wikipedia. Therefore this
new wiki was created to fill a role that Wikipedia cannot fill.

You are all invited to visit the new wiki and to make your own
contributions to the wiki. Anybody can edit the text in the ACL Wiki
for Computational Linguistics by setting up an account and logging into
the wiki.

The ACL thanks Dragomir Radev, Steven Bird, Ali Hakim, and Peter Turney
for setting up the wiki.
