LAST CALL FOR TUTORIAL PROPOSALS

Proposal submission deadline: November 15, 2002


EACL 2003
11th Conference of the European Chapter
of the Association for Computational Linguistics

The EACL 2003 Program Committee invites proposals for the Tutorial
Program for EACL 2003, which is to be held in the interval April 12 -
17, 2003 in the Agro Hotel, Budapest, Hungary. The tutorials for EACL
2003 will be held on April 12 in two sessions (morning and afternoon).

Tutorial speakers will have an opportunity to disseminate
state-of-the-art techniques and approaches in the areas of their
expertise to the CL/NLP research community. Members from all segments
of the CL/NLP and related fields are invited to submit proposals for
review.

Each tutorial should be well-focused so that its core content can be
covered in three hours of lecture time (including the break). However,
in exceptional cases six-hour tutorial slots are possible as well.


Submission Details

Proposals for tutorials should be no more than four pages in length,
and should contain:

a.. a brief but technical description of the tutorial topic;
b.. the names, postal addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses of
the tutorial speakers, with brief descriptions of their technical
background;
c.. the name of one tutorial speaker with an email address as the
primary contact;
d.. a list of audio-visual and computer requirements and special room
requirements, if there are any.

Proposals should be submitted by electronic mail, in any of the forms
(rtf, pdf or ps) no later than 15 November 2002.

Please submit your proposals and any inquiries (subject line should
be: "EACL-03 TUTORIAL PROPOSAL") to:

Dan Cristea - dcristeainfoiasi.ro
University "Alexandru Ioan Cuza" of Iasi
Faculty of Computer Science
16, Berthelot St., 6600 - Iasi, Romania


Tutorial Speakers' Responsibilities

1. Tutorial speakers must provide descriptions of their tutorials for
inclusion in the Conference Registration. The description must be
provided as follows:

a.. an rtf and a pdf version that fits onto 1/2 page;
b.. an ASCII version that can be included with email announcements;
c.. an HTML version that can be included on the Conference home page.

2. Finances: The current ACL policy is that tutorials are reimbursed
at the following rate: $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 travel expenses except where the presenter(s) cannot get
them through the usual mechanisms: for ACL members we assume that they
would be coming to the meeting anyway. For people who are not ACL
members, we would expect to pay for costs that they cannot get
reimbursed elsewhere. If they attend the conference, tutorial
presenters must register for EACL03.

3. Tutorialists will prepare all the tutorial materials.
