ACL '02 Call for Tutorial Proposals

The Program Committee of the 40th Annual Meeting of the Association
for Computational Linguistics invites proposals for the Tutorial
Program for ACL '02, to be held at the University of Pennsylvania,
Philadelphia, PA, USA, July 7th-12th, 2002 (see
http://www.ircs.upenn.edu/acl02/index.shtml). The tutorials for ACL
'02 will be held on July 7th, 2002. Each tutorial should be
well-focused so that its core content can be covered in a three-hour
tutorial slot (including a 30 minute break). However, in exceptional
cases six-hour tutorial slots are possible as well. There will be
space and time for at most four three-hour tutorials.

TUTORIALS CHAIR

Hwee Tou Ng, DSO National Laboratories, 20 Science Park Drive, Singapore

118230, Republic of Singapore, nhweetoudso.org.sg

SUBMISSION DETAILS

Proposals for tutorials should contain:

* A title and brief (less than 500 words) content description of the
 tutorial topic.
* The names, postal addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses of the
 tutorial speakers, with a one-paragraph statement of the speaker's(s')
 research interests and areas of expertise.
* Any special requirements for technical needs (display projector,
 computer infrastructure, etc.)

Proposals should be submitted by electronic mail, in plain ASCII
(iso8859-1) text as soon as possible, but in any case no later than
January 11th, 2002.

Please email your proposals to nhweetoudso.org.sg, with the subject
line: "ACL '02 TUTORIAL PROPOSAL".

PLEASE NOTE: PROPOSALS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED BY REGULAR MAIL OR FAX.

PRACTICAL ARRANGEMENTS

Accepted tutorial speakers will be notified by January 25th, 2002 and
must then provide descriptions of their tutorials for inclusion in the
conference registration material by March 29th, 2002. The description
should be 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; and an HTML version that can be included on the
conference home page. Tutorial speakers must provide tutorial
materials, at least containing copies of the overhead transparencies
to be used as well as a bibliography for the material covered in the
tutorial by May 10th, 2002.

FINANCIAL INFORMATION

The current ACL policy is that tutorials are reimbursed at the
following rate: US$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 any further expenses.
