Subject: NAACL-2001 Call for Tutorial Proposals


 The organizers of the Second Meeting of the North American Chapter
 of the ACL invite proposals for the Tutorial Program for NAACL-2001,
 to be held in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA, 2-7 June 2001. The
 tutorials will be held on June 2nd.

 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

 the tutorial speakers, with one-paragraph statement of the
 speaker's(s') research interests and areas of expertise.

 o 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 December 20,

 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
 February 14, 2001. 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 April 25, 2001.


 The current NAACL 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 NAACL does
 not usually cover travel expenses except where the presenter(s) are
 not independently attending the conference and getting travel
