Introduction to the Virtual Conference Website
(by Hao Fang and Sudha Rao)

The ACL2020 virtual conference website uses MiniConf built by Hendrik Strobelt and Sasha Rush. The ACL2020 infrastructure committee is very grateful to the volunteers and contributors whose valuable contributions to building the virtual infrastructure made the conference possible. We would also like to thank Lee Campbell and Nitin Madnani for their additional advice on the virtual infrastructure, and John Wieting and Graham Neubig for contributing the model used in the "Similar Papers" feature.
