COLING•ACL 2006: Call for Workshop Proposals

ANNOUNCEMENT: February 6th

The program of workshops and co-located events is now posted at


The Program Committee of the 21st International Conference on Computational Linguistics and the 44th Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics invites proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the joint COLING/ACL conference in Sydney, Australia. We solicit proposals on any topic of interest to the COLING and ACL community. We especially welcome interdisciplinary proposals that encourage deeper connections to fields both traditionally and more recently allied with computational linguistics (such as linguistics, speech processing, psychology, information retrieval, machine learning, bioinformatics, etc.).

The workshops will be held on Saturday, July 22, and Sunday, July 23, near the main COLING/ACL 2006 conference venue.

The ACL has a set of policies on workshops. You can find general information on policies regarding attendance, publication, financing, and sponsorship, as well as on specific policies on sponsorship and financial support of SIG workshops, at the following URL:


Proposals must be submitted using the Workshop Proposal Submission Form. The submission form provides detailed instructions on the information required in the proposal.

Please submit proposals by electronic mail in plain ASCII text, using the Workshop Proposal Submission Form, to the following address:

The subject line should be: "ACL 2006 WORKSHOP PROPOSAL".
