We welcome proposals on any topic of interest to the ACL community. We especially encourage interdisciplinary proposals involving, but not limited to, research areas such as speech and multimodal processing, information retrieval, text and data mining, multilingual NLP, web-centered language processing, bioinfomatics, and computational psycholinguistics.
