The ACL-2003 Program Committee invites proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with ACL-2003 in Sapporo (Japan). We welcome proposals on any topic of interest to the ACL community. We also encourage proposals involving neighboring research areas such as speech technology, information retrieval, text and data mining, biological information extraction, computational psycholinguistics, etc. Workshops focusing on Asian language processing and fostering communication and cooperation between Western and Eastern (Asian) CL communities are welcomed as well.
