The EACL2021 virtual conference website uses MiniConf built by Hendrik Strobelt and Sasha Rush that was extended by the amazing teams of EMNLP2020 and ACL 2020. The EACL2021 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 Nitin Madnani for his advice and IT support regarding the virtual infrastructure. We also want to thank AI2 for contributing the SPECTER model used in the "Similar Papers" feature, David Wadden et al. for DyGIE++ that generated paper keywords for us and the team of Connected Papers for providing us with similarity graphs.
