Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics

Call Deadline: 25-Nov-2008

Meeting Description:

Proposals are invited for the Tutorial Program of the 12th Conference of the
European Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics (EACL 2009),
to be held in Athens, Greece, from March 30 to April 3, 2009. The selected
tutorials will be given on the Monday and Tuesday preceeding the main
conference (March 30 and 31).

Final Call for Tutorial Proposals

-- apologies for multiple postings --

Proposals for tutorials on all topics of natural language processing, speech
processing and information retrieval are sought. We particularly welcome (1)
tutorials which cover advances in newly emerging areas not previously covered in
an (E)ACL related tutorial, or (2) tutorials which provide introductions into
related fields which are potentially relevant for the CL community (e.g.
bioinformatics, human language processing, emerging machine learning techniques).

The remuneration for tutorials will be computed as follows:
- €484 for up to 20 people
- plus €23 per person for registrants 21 to 50
- plus €16 per person for registrants greater than 50

The minimum remuneration will be €484 or the cost of one economy airline ticket
to the conference, whichever is higher. As has been ACL policy, the remuneration
is per tutorial, not per presenter; multiple presenters will split the proceeds,
the default assumption being an even split.

These figures are euro conversions to the nearest euro of dollar amounts quoted
in http://aclweb.org/aclwiki/index.php?title=Tutorial_teacher_payment_policy

Submission Detail:
Proposals for tutorials should contain:

1. A title and brief description of the tutorial content and its relevance to
the ACL community (not more than 2 pages).
2. A brief outline of the tutorial structure showing that the tutorial's core
content can be covered in a three-hour slot (including a coffee break). In
exceptional cases six-hour tutorial slots are available as well.
3. The names, postal addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses of the
tutorial instructors, including a one-paragraph statement of their research
interests and areas of expertise.
4. A list of previous venues and approximate audience sizes, if the same or a
similar tutorial has been given elsewhere; otherwise an estimate of the audience
5. A description of special requirements for technical equipment (e.g. internet

Proposals should be submitted by electronic mail, in plain ASCII text no later
than November 25th, 2008 to E.J.Krahmer "at" uvt.nl

The subject line should be: "EACL 2009 TUTORIAL PROPOSAL".

Please note that only proposals submitted by e-mail will be taken into account.

provide abstracts of their tutorials for inclusion in the conference
registration material by January 13th, 2009. The description should be in two
formats: an ASCII version that can be included in email announcements and

site, and a PDF version for inclusion in the electronic proceedings (detailed
instructions to follow). Tutorial speakers must provide tutorial materials, at
least containing copies of the course slides as well as a bibliography for the
material covered in the tutorial, by February 2nd, 2009.
