Subject: Workshop on Tibeto-Burman Languages and Linguistics


Workshop on Tibeto-Burman Languages and Linguistics

To be held Friday July 27 & Saturday July 28, 2001
During the Linguistic Society of America 2001 Summer Institute
At the University of California, Santa Barbara
Santa Barbara, California

This Workshop will bring together scholars working on all aspects of 
Tibeto-Burman languages and linguistics.

The Keynote Speaker for the General Session will be James A. Matisoff, 
University of California, Berkeley. For the General Session, we are seeking 
abstracts on all aspects of T-B linguistics. Field reports and graduate 
work are also encouraged.

The Keynote Speaker for the Parasession will be Michael Noonan, University 
of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. For the Parasession, we encourage abstracts which 
address the use of grammar and connected speech in T-B languages.

Abstracts for both the General and Parasession should be no longer than one 
page with one-inch margins using at least an 11-point font. Along with the 
abstract, please enclose a separate page specifying the affiliation, 
address, and e-mail address of the
author(s). Abstracts may be submitted electronically (as an attached file in 
RTF, postscript, PDF or MS Word format).

Abstracts are due by February 1, 2001

Message 2: Computational Linguistics: ACL'2001/EACL'2001

Date: Mon, 20 Nov 2000 14:45:09 EST
From: Priscilla Rasmussen <>
Subject: Computational Linguistics: ACL'2001/EACL'2001

ACL'01/EACL'01 Joint Conference 
(***Updated Timetable of Important Dates***)

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. 

 The subject line should be: 

 Please e-mail proposals and any inquiries to:
