ACL 2001 is organizing a mentoring (coaching) service for authors from regions of the world where English is not the language of scientific exchange. Many authors from these regions, although able to read the scientific literature in English, have little or no experience in writing papers in English for conferences such as the ACL meetings. They may also have some trouble with the style of the presentation of the material that is expected for ACL. The service will be arranged as follows. A set of potential mentors will be identified by Aravind Joshi, who has agreed to organize this service for ACL 2001. An author who would like to take advantage of this service must send a draft of his/her paper to Aravind K. Joshi Room 555 Moore Department of Computer and Information Science 200 South 33rd Street University of Pennsylvania Philadelphia PA 19104-6389 USA fax: +1 215 898 0587 The author must send one (1) copy of the paper (hard copy by regular mail, courier service, or fax) by no later than December 20, 2000. The author should try to make the draft as complete as possible in order to get the best advice. An appropriate mentor will be assigned to each paper and the mentor will get back to the author at least two weeks before the deadline for the submission to ACL 2001 program committee. Please note that this service is for the benefit of the authors as described above. It is not a general mentoring service for authors to improve their papers. If you have any questions about this service please feel free to send a message to Aravind Joshi (firstname.lastname@example.org).
