Main conference: August 23rd-27th, 2004
Workshops: August 28th-29th, 2004

Following the regular program of the main conference, workshops on
current topics in Computational Linguistics will be held on 28th-29th,
August 2004, at the conference venue. Workshops will normally last one
day, but may extend to a second day if required. Proposals by
qualified individuals interested in organising a workshop are
solicited.

Proposals should be submitted by electronic mail, as soon as possible,
but no later than December 15, 2003. The subject line should be:
''COLING 2004 WORKSHOP PROPOSAL''. Those interested in organising a
workshop should send a brief proposal (in plain text) to:

Michael Hess (hesscl.unizh.ch), describing

* A title and brief (2-page max) description of the workshop topic and
 content, including a description of the proposed workshop format

* relevance to COLING

* the target audience

* approximate number of participants expected

* tentative schedule for the workshop (at least half a day, up to two
days)

* a calendar of deadlines for submission, notification, and
camera-ready copy (which must be compatible with COLING deadlines)

* programme committee for the workshop 

* relevant experience of the organiser(s) 

* the name, postal address, phone number, e-mail address, and webpage
of each chair

* facilities required (overhead projector, beamer, computer, etc.)



The goal of the workshops is to provide an opportunity to focus
intensively on a specific topic within computational
linguistics/NLP. The workshop should bring together researchers and
practitioners from different communities to discuss recent results and
trends in the field.

The workshop proposers will be responsible for the organisational
aspects (e.g. workshop call preparation and distribution, review of
papers, notification of acceptance, coordinating workshop
participation and content, assembling of the workshop proceedings,
etc.).

Proposers are encouraged to submit as early as possible to ensure that
appropriate arrangements can be made to accommodate all workshop
sessions, and to provide adequate time for proposal evaluation and
feedback. No submissions will be accepted after the final deadline of
December 15, 2003.

Deadlines for workshops proposals

* Electronic submission of proposals: no later than December 15, 2003
* Notification to proposers: January 16, 2004
