 Initial Call for Papers


 June 29-July 2, 2000
 Stanford University

The Seventeenth International Conference on Machine Learning
(ICML-2000) will be held at Stanford University from June 29 to July
2, 2000, in the heart of Silicon Valley.

The conference brings together researchers interested in the
computational study of learning to exchange ideas and report recent
progress. ICML-2000 welcomes submissions on all facets of machine
learning, but especially solicits papers on problem areas, research
topics, learning paradigms, and approaches to evaluation that have
been underrepresented at past conferences. We plan to restructure the
reviewing process to encourage publication of a broad range of
research and to increase participation.

The deadline for electronic submissions is MONDAY, JANUARY 24,
2000. The conference web site at

will provide additional details as they become available. ICML-2000
will be collocated with the Thirteenth Annual Conference on
Computational Learning Theory (COLT-2000).

 North American Chapter of the
 Association for Computational Linguistics

 Lucent Technologies Bell Laboratories


The ANLP/NAACL Program Committee invites proposals for the Tutorial
Program for ANLP/NAACL 2000, to be held in Seattle, Washington, USA,
April 29 - May 3, 2000. The tutorials will be held on April 29th.

Each tutorial should be well-focused so that its core content can be
covered in a three hour tutorial slot (plus a 30 minute break). In
exceptional cases, 6-hour tutorial slots are possible as well.

There will be space and time for between four and six three-hour tutorials.

Submission Details:

Proposals for tutorials should contain:

 * A title and brief (< 500 word) content description of the tutorial topic.

 * The names, postal addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses of the
 tutorial speakers, with one-paragraph statement of the speaker's(s')
 research interests and areas of expertise.

 * Any special requirements for technical needs (computer infrastructure,

Proposals should be submitted by electronic mail, in plain ASCII
(iso8859-1) text as soon as possible, but no later than October 28, 1999. 

Please E-mail proposals to, with the subject

Please Note: Proposals will not be accepted by regular mail or fax.


Accepted tutorial speakers must provide descriptions of their
tutorials for inclusion in the Conference Registration material by
January 10, 2000. The description must be provided in three formats: a
latex version that fits onto 1/2 page; an ascii (iso8859-1) version
that can be included with the email announcement; an HTML version that
can be included on the Conference home page.

Tutorial speakers will provide tutorial materials, at least containing
copies of the overhead sheets used, by March 17, 2000.


The current ACL policy is that tutorials are reimbursed at the
following rate: $500 per session plus $25 per registrant in the range
21-50 plus $15 per registrant in excess of 50. Note that this is per
tutorial, not per presenter: multiple presenters will split the
proceeds, the default assumption being an even split. The ACL does
not usually cover travel expenses except where the presenter(s) are
not independently attending the conference and getting travel
