Your new Squibs and Discussions editor for Computational Linguistics

After a transitional period I have taken up the position of Squibs & Discussions editor for the Computational Linguistics journal, and the first squib for which I’ve served as editor is now available early access online. It’s a meta-review of effectiveness of BLEU, by Ehud Reiter, where he concludes that there is insufficient evidence for using BLEU beyond diagnostic evaluation of MT systems — a conclusion drastically at odds with much current usage.

Keep submitting your interesting squibs!
