ACL-07 Call for Tutorial Proposals

The Association for Computational Linguistics invites proposals for the Tutorial Program for the 45th Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL-07), to be held in Prague, Czech Republic, from June 24 to June 29, 2007. The tutorials will be held on June 24, 2007.

Proposals for tutorials on all topics of computational linguistics and its applications are sought. Especially encouraged are cross-disciplinary tutorials that educate the community about recent technical advancements in neighboring disciplines that are of interest to computational linguistics, or introduce relevant algorithms and theory that may be "old hat" to specialists in these areas but are still unfamiliar to part of the natural language processing community.

The ACL has a set of policies on tutorials. You can find general information on policies regarding financial support of ACL tutorials, at the following URL: http://www.cis.udel.edu/~carberry/ACL/tutorial-payment-policy.html.


SUBMISSION DETAILS

Proposals for tutorials should contain:

  1. A title and brief description of the tutorial content and its relevance to the ACL community (not more than 2 pages).
  2. A brief outline of the tutorial structure showing that the tutorial's core content can be covered in a three-hour slot (including a coffee break). In exceptional cases six-hour tutorial slots are available as well.
  3. The names, postal addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses of the tutorial instructors, including a one-paragraph statement of their research interests and areas of expertise.
  4. A list of previous venues and approximate audience sizes, if the same or a similar tutorial has been given elsewhere; otherwise an estimate of the audience size.
  5. A description of special requirements for technical equipment (e.g., internet access).

Proposals should be submitted by electronic mail, in plain ASCII text no later than December 15, 2006 to tutorials at acl2007 dot org

The subject line should be: "ACL-07 TUTORIAL PROPOSAL".

PLEASE NOTE: PROPOSALS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED BY REGULAR MAIL OR FAX.

TUTORIAL SPEAKER RESPONSIBILITIES

Accepted tutorial speakers will be notified by January 15, 2007, and must then provide abstracts of their tutorials for inclusion in the conference registration material by February 16, 2007.
