Workshops at Conferences
Workshops held in conjunction with ACL conferences are treated in a uniform manner with respect to fees and budgeting constraints:
- All workshops will charge a standard registration fee; that fee is determined by the ACL treasurer in conjunction with the ACL business manager and the general conference chair.
- The workshop fee will cover basic workshop expenses such as room charges, proceedings, etc. The workshop fee does not cover extras such as invited speakers, banquet, lunch (unless lunches are covered for all workshops), etc.
- The workshop registration fee will be waived for one invited speaker at each workshop but no remuneration or other reimbursement of expenses will be covered from the workshop registration fees. To have additional invited speakers, the workshop will need to get sponsors or, if a SIG, use their SIG shadow account.
- If a workshop wishes to include extras, (such as reimbursing expenses for invited speakers, a workshop banquet, etc.), then the workshop must secure the funding for these expenses from outside support. The exception to this rule is a workshop supported by a SIG where that SIG has funds in their shadow account to cover the extras.
