Call for Workshop Proposals
ACL'01/EACL'01 Joint Conference

The ACL/EACL'01 Organizing Committee invites proposals for workshops
to be held at ACL/EACL'01. ACL/EACL'01 will be held in Toulouse,
France, July 6-11, 2001 with workshops being held July 6-7, 2001.

ACL/EACL'01 workshops provide organizers and participants with an
opportunity to focus intensively on a specific topic within
computational linguistics. Often, workshops concentrate on specific
topics of technical interest (e.g., parsing technologies), particular
areas of application for language processing technologies (e.g., NLP
applied to IR), or community-wide issues that deserve attention (e.g.,
standardization of resources and tools). We welcome proposals on any
topic that is of interest to the ACL community, but we particularly
encourage proposals that broaden the scope of our community through
the consideration of new techniques or applications.


Workshop proposals should provide sufficient information to evaluate
the quality and importance of the topic, and the size of the
interested community. Proposals should be 2-4 pages and contain the
following information:

 - A title and brief description of the workshop topic.

 - A budget proposal. 

 - The target audience and projected number of participants along
 with support for the projected count. Supporting evidence could
 include a list of potential submitters, a list of conferences that
 contained papers on the proposed topic, the number of new
 companies focused on this topic, or recent funding initiatives
 that address this topic.

 - Resource needs such as room size and number of days. Include any
 special requirements for technical support (computer
 infrastructure, etc.).

 - The name, postal address, phone number, e-mail address, and
 webpage of each chair. In addition, indicate the chairs'
 background in the workshop area.

Proposals should be submitted by electronic mail, in plain ASCII text,
as soon as possible but no later than JANUARY 12, 2001. (This early
due date is required to support the May 7, 2001 deadline for
camera-ready copies of all workshop papers, see the schedule below.)

 The subject line should be:
