Ani Nenkova has been selected to be a co-Editor-in-Chief (co-EiC) of TACL, alongside continuing co-EiCs Mark Johnson and Brian Roark. Congratulations to Ani!

Lillian Lee has been at the helm of TACL since nearly its inception and will continue as co-EiC until the end of the calendar year, but we can still express an early "thanks very much" to her for all she has done for TACL!

Clarification of EMNLP 2019 eligibility deadlines (earlier final-version recommendation)

The previous announcement regarding EMNLP 2019 eligibilty deadlines has been edited to clarify that technical approval of the final version by the Action Editor is required by the stated deadline. This means that we recommend that final versions of accepted papers be submitted by August 22 2019 in order to make technical approval by the Action Editor feasible by September 5.

This requirement of accepted final-version submission is in addition to the previously announced condition that  the submission must be accepted (decision type (a)) by July 25, 2019.
