EACL 2012 Call for Tutorial Proposals

Proposals are invited for the Tutorial Program of the 13th Conference of the European Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics (EACL 2012), to be held in Avignon, France, from April 23 to April 27, 2012. The selected tutorials will be given on the Monday and Tuesday preceding the main conference (April 23 and 24).

EACL 2012 seeks proposals for tutorials in all areas of computational linguistics, broadly conceived to include disciplines such as linguistics (including phycholinguistics and other subfields), speech, information retrieval and multimodal processing.

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, social media, human language processing, machine learning techniques). In order to gather a widespread audience, the interest of the tutorial and the quality of the instructors will also be taken into account.


Remuneration for tutorials is regulated by ACL policies:


The conversion to euros will be done as follows: €550 for up to 20 people, plus €25 per person for registrants between 21 to 50, plus €18 per person for registrants greater than 50.

Please NOTE: Remuneration for Tutorial presenters is fixed according to the above policy and does not cover registration fees for the main conference.

Submission Details:

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 (excluding 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 size.

5. A description of special requirements for technical equipment (e.g. internet access). Proposals should be submitted by electronic mail, in plain ASCII text, to tutorials at eacl2012 dot org, no later than September 30th 2011.

The subject line should be: ''EACL 2012 TUTORIAL PROPOSAL''.

Please Note:

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

- you will receive email confirmation from us that your proposal has been received. If you do not receive this confirmation 24 hours after sending the proposal, please contact us personally using both e.agirre at ehu dot es and lieve.macken at hogent dot be

Tutorial Speaker Responsibilities:

Accepted tutorial speakers will be notified by November 3rd, 2011, and must then provide abstracts of their tutorials for inclusion in the conference registration material by December 16th, 2011. The description should be in two formats: an ASCII version that can be included in email announcements and published on the conference website, 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 1st, 2012.

Submission deadline for tutorial proposals: September 30th, 2011
Notification of acceptance: November 3rd, 2011
Tutorial descriptions due: December 16th, 2011
Tutorial course material due: February 1st, 2012
