Workshop Chair

The Workshop Chair is responsible for requesting workshop bids, selecting appropriate ones, arranging for their dates, locations, refreshments, presentation and computer requirements, and all other special needs.  It is essential that the workshop chair recognize the different kinds of workshops and understand the policies regarding each --- information regarding this can be found in Workshop overview and policies  .

The call for workshop proposals should request that workshop chairs ask potential members of their proposed program committees before submitting a workshop proposal. The call for proposals used at recent ACL conferences can be found at recent ACL calls for workshop proposals  Before accepting a workshop proposal, the conference workshop chair should check with individual workshop chairs to make sure that the proposed members of the program committee have agreed to serve.

The workshops must be self-financing (at least); profits belong to ACL (an exception is for SIG workshops --- see ACL-policy-on-Sig-workshops).

Sample Calls for Papers for recent ACL workshops from can be found in sample workshop calls for papers.  

Proceedings are printed and distributed by the ACL. For formatting (title page, etc.) see workshop-proceedings.
