Dear Colleagues,

We are glad to announce that the ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics) Special Interest Group on Slavic Natural Language Processing (SIGSLAV) has been established.

The main purpose of SIGSLAV is to:

- provide researchers who share an interest in Slavic NLP platforms and fora for information exchange;
- facilitate and sponsor organization of scientific events relevant to Slavic NLP;
- maintain a repository of resources relevant to research on NLP in Slavic languages;
- support the creation of common standards and representations related to NLP in the Slavic languages.
