 COLING 2002
 Call for Workshop Proposals
 August 31 -- September 1, 2002 
 COLING 2002
 19th International Conference on Computational Linguistics
 August 24 -- September 1, 2002
 Howard International House, Taipei, Taiwan
 Organized by:
 Academia Sinica, ACLCLP and National Tsing Hua University
 Under the Auspices of:
 The International Committee on Computational Linguistics

The COLING Organizing Committee invites proposals for workshops
to be held at COLING2002.

COLING2002 will be held in Taipei, Taiwan, August 24th - September 1st, 2002
with workshops being held August 31st and September 1st, 2002. 

COLING 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., shallow parsing), particular areas of application for language
processing technologies (e.g., NLP applied to multilingual cross-language
retrieval), 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 Computational Linguistics community, but we
particularly encourage proposals that broaden the scope of our community
through the consideration of new techniques or applications, in particular
with respect to multimodal communication, the semantic web,
speech technology, information retrieval, text and data mining,
biological information extraction, computational psycholinguistics,

Proposals Submission Details

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

- 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

 on the proposed topic, the number of new companies focused on this topic,
 or recent funding initiatives that address this topic; 

- the intended length (at least half a day, up to two days);

- resource needs such as room size and number of days. Include any special

- 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 15th , 2002.
The subject line should be: "COLING2002 WORKSHOP PROPOSAL".

General Guidelines for Workshop Organiztion
	- prepared by the COLING-2002 Organizing Committee

The COLING-2002 general guidelines on publication, financing, and
sponsorship for workshops are listed as follows.

0. Please first submit a proposal to Prof. Antonio Zampolli
 (, the Coling-2002 Workshop Chair.
 The deadline for Workshop Proposals is 15 January, 2002.

 The information on the expected number of participants is required
 in your proposal. The COLING-2002 Oraganizing Committee will need
 such information to estimate the number of copies of the workshop
 proceedings as well as various other estimates.

 (For general COLING-2002 information, please visit the URL at:

1. The registration fee will be the same for all the individual workshops.
 The COLING-2002 Oraganizing Committee are responsible for collecting
 and managing the registration fee.

2. The on-line registration (and pre-registration) of the workshops will
 be integrated into the registration process of Coling-2002. 

3. The COLING-2002 Oraganizing Committee will provide the on-site
 registration service, and maintain the information desk (including
 responsible personnel) during the workshop. The information desk will
 be a centralized one, which is shared by all the workshops.

4. The workshop organizer is responsible for compiling and typesetting
 the proceedings content (including preface, table of content, papers,
 numbering, index, etc.) and then converting it into a format conforming
 to the pre-specified standard (e.g., PDF, Postscript, etc.)
 set forth by the printing group of the Oraganizing Committee. 

 The paper style and format should be the same as the main conference.

5. The COLING-2002 Oraganizing Committee are responsible for printing
 the workshop proceedings and producing the conference CD-ROM;
 all the proceedings of the main conference, tutorials and workshops
 will be put into the same CD-ROM.

6. The files for the workshop proceedings, prepared by the workshop
 organizer, must be sent to the printing group of the local organizing
 committee before the pre-specified date. This is necessary to ensure
 that the workshop proceedings be included in the CD-ROM and be
 distributed on-site. The content will not be included in the CD-ROM and
 the Oraganizing Committee are not responsible for the later mail delivery
 cost, if the workshop organizer fails to deliver the files in time.

7. The COLING-2002 Oraganizing Committee will decide the number of copies
 of the proceedings to be printed, and are fully in charge
 of those extra copies. However, the workshop organizer will own the
 copyright and the right to re-print the proceedings.

8. The COLING-2002 Oraganizing Committee will provide the conference room
 and general equipments (like LCD projectors, overhead projectors,
 and microphones, etc.) without extra charge. Special requirements,
 however, should be specified in the workshop proposal in advance, if any.

9. Two refreshment services will be provided freely per day (one in the
 morning break, and the other in the afternoon break). Since the
 refreshment services might be shared by several concurrent workshops,
 each workshop organizer will be requested to synchronize with the
 pre-specified break schedule, if it is the case.

10. Self-paid lunch boxes and/or cafeteria tickets will be avaible during
 the workshops. The expense is separated from the registration fee.
 Workshop organizers must make other meal arrangments (if any).

11. Any extra expense not mentioned above (e.g., reimbursement for invited
 speakers, banquet for the steering committee members, etc.) will be
 the workshop organizer's responsibility.

12. If you have any question about the logistic support, please contact
 Dr. Keh-Yih Su (Email: "").

Revenue-Sharing Incentive for COLING-2002 Workshops

To encourage workshops with high academic standard and research
innovation as well as to help workshop organizers defray some of the costs
for organizing such a workshop, the COLING-2002 organizing committee proposes
the following revenue-sharing incentive.

For any workshop with a paid-registration of over 60 participants, part of
the registration fee will be re-imbursed to the organizer. The formula for
calculating the reimbursement amount follows:

 $10 x (N-60),

where N is the number of paid registrants (regardless of the category
of the registration fees).

The reimbursement is executed in one of the following ways:

 1. As reimbursement to the direct expenses of the workshop
 (original copies of receipts of the expenses will be required):
 fully reimbursable up to the amount determined by the above formula.

 2. Exchange for free registration (as student fellowship, speaker
 privilege, or subsidy to scholars from countries with financial
 difficulties): fully exchangeable up to the amount determined by the
 above formula.

 3. As direct payment to the individual or SIG organizer (in exchange for
 the service of organizing the workshop): fully payable, but subject to
 a 20% flat tax rate for income payment to foreigners in Taiwan.
