This is a session of the following conference: 20th International
Conference on Computational Linguistics

Meeting Description:

Tutorials for the 20th International Conference on Computational
Linguistics Coling 2004 Call for Tutorial Proposals

		 Geneva, Switzerland, 22 August, 2004

The Coling 2004 Tutorial Organising Committee invites proposals for
the Tutorial Programme for Coling 2004. The tutorials will be held 22
August, 2004, immediately preceding the main conference 23-27 August,
2004.

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).
We expect that there will be space and time for at most four
tutorials.

SUBMISSION DETAILS

 Proposals for tutorials should contain:

* A title and brief content description of the tutorial topic (no more
 than one page)
 
* 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. In case of
multiple speakers, please identify proposal contact

* Pre-requisites expected from participants

* Any special requirements for technical needs (beamer, computer
infrastructure, etc.)

Proposals should be submitted by electronic mail, in plain ASCII text
or PDF as soon as possible, but no later than 15 December 2003 to
coling2004-tutorialscui.unige.ch. The subject line should be:
''COLING 2004
 
TUTORIAL PROPOSAL''.

Notification of acceptance will be sent to proposers by 16 January,
2004.


PRACTICAL ARRANGEMENTS

 Accepted tutorial speakers must provide final descriptions of their
 tutorials for inclusion in the Conference Registration material by 21 May,
 2004. The description must be provided in three formats: a latex version
 that fits onto 1/2 page using a latex template to be provided; an ASCII
 version that can be included with the email announcement; an HTML version
 (without applets, etc.) that can be included on the Conference home page.

 Tutorial speakers must provide tutorial materials, containing at least
 copies of the slides used in the presentation as well as a bibliography for
 the material covered, by 4 June, 2004.

 Finances: the reimbursement for tutorial speakers has yet to be finalised.
 The reimbursement will consist of a flat amount per tutorial, plus a
 proportion of the registration fees for each registrant in excess of 20
 registrants. Note that this reimbursement will be per tutorial, not per
 presenter: multiple presenters will split the proceeds, the default
 assumption being an even split. In addition, registration fees for the
 main conference will be waived for one speaker per tutorial. No further
 expenses will be reimbursed. Note that timely availability of tutorial
 materials is a precondition for reimbursement.
