The ACL'2000 Program Committee invites proposals for Workshops to be
held in conjunction with the ACL'2000 Conference.

Areas of Interest

We welcome proposals on any topic of interest to the ACL community.
In addition to the traditional workshops areas, including both core
issues in CL and NLP applications (such as MT, CLIR, speech related
applications, etc.), we encourage proposals for workshops focussing on
Asian language processing and fostering communication and cooperation
between Western and Eastern (Asian) CL communities.


The Conference will be held October 3-6; Workshop dates will be 
scheduled before and/or after the conference. 


Pre/Post Conference Workshop/Tutorials will be held at Hong Kong
University of Science and Technology (HKUST).

The ACL has a policy on workshops: 


Reviewing of Workshop proposals will be managed by an international 
Workshop Program Committee. 
Each submission will be reviewed by at least three reviewers.

* A title and brief (about 500 word) content description of the
