Chuck Fillmore

My old friend, and sometime colleague, Chuck Fillmore has gotten the 2012 Lifetime Achievement Award from the Association for Computational Linguistics. From the International Computer Science Institute (in Berkeley CA) site:

[7/11/12] Professor Charles Fillmore, director of the FrameNet Project [at ICSI], was presented with the Lifetime Achievement Award by the Association for Computational Linguistics at its annual meeting yesterday in Jeju, South Korea. The award is given each year for widely recognized, sustained, and enduring contributions to the field of computational linguistics. (link)

For health reasons, Chuck wasn’t able to travel to Korea, but he made a 41-minute video of his acceptance speech: a characteristically clear and charming account of his life’s work in linguistics, well worth viewing by anyone interested in the field. (Chuck wrote to friends a little while back about how hard it was to fashion this talk.)
