ACL-07 Call For Workshop Proposals

The Association for Computational Linguistics invites proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the 45th Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL-07), in Prague, Czech Republic. We solicit proposals on any topic of interest to the ACL community.

The workshops will be held on Thursday, June 28, and Friday, June 29, 2007 at the main 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: http://www.cis.udel.edu/~carberry/ACL/index-policies.html Your proposal should include a budget, a clear motivation and estimations of numbers of submissions and attendees.

SUBMISSION DETAILS

A workshop proposal submission form is available online at http://ufal.mff.cuni.cz/acl2007/workshops/proposal.txt containing prompts for information that is expected in the proposal.

Proposals for workshops should contain:

  1. A title and brief description (max. 500 words) of the workshop topic and its motivation.
  2. A description of target audience and expected number of participants.
