[Corpora-List] NAACL-Latin-America Google Group

Greetings all,

This is to announce the availability of a Google Group that is meant to be a forum to make announcements and have discussions about Natural Language Processing and Computational Linguistics in Latin America.

Visit the following link to join...


As many of you know NAACL ( http://naacl.org ) has maintained The Registry of Latin American Researchers in Computational Linguistics and Natural Language Processing since 2002. ( http://www.d.umn.edu/~tpederse/registry/registry.cgi ) The Registry is intended to serve as a search-able database on behalf of researchers who are either from Latin America or located in Latin America. There are now more than 270 members of the Registry, so I encourage you to check it out and also join if you are from or located in Latin America.

However, the Registry is primarily a "read only" resource, and while this remains an important source of information, it doesn't offer a convenient means for distributing information, carrying on discussions, or asking questions about resources or data of particular relevance to Latin America. As such, this new Google Group is open to *anyone* who wishes to join, in the hopes of more closely integrating the Latin American research community and also making it easier for those in other regions to find out more about research and events in Latin America.

Please feel free to participate actively in this group, and you are welcome to post in English, Spanish, or Portuguese (whichever seems most appropriate). Also, please note that this group will one of NAACL's primary mechanism for making announcements of particular interest to Latin American researchers, so please join if this might be of interest.

Cordially, Ted
