Lillian Lee named co-editor-in-chief of the Transactions of the Association for Computational Linguistics (TACL)

Lillian Lee has been named co-editor-in-chief of the Transactions of the Association for Computational Linguistics (TACL).  She shares the position with Michael Collins.

From the journal webpage: "TACL publishes conference-length papers, but has a journal-style reviewing process, and papers appearing at TACL are eligible for various ACL-associated conferences (currently ACL, NAACL, EACL, EMNLP). Thus the model combines the benefits of a journal, with the benefits of being able to present the work at a major conference."
